    much=quantity

    We use no more than three eggs to make an omelette
    = We do not use four/five/six etc eggs
    I like that book no more than I like this one = Objectively I like both these books the same amount.

    longer = time/duration of time

    It will take no longer than 12 hours to fly to America

    The school is no longer open.

    longer = length

    The rope is no longer than 20 feet.

    The road to the hills is no longer than 5 miles.



    Hope this helps a bit.
