    Re: at the front of / at the back of

    Try putting these in a couple of sentences, so we can understand what you want to know or tell you whether they were correctly used or not.

    Re: at the front of / at the back of

    If you look at the root words "front" and "back" it's just a small step to "at the front of" and "at the back of".

    I am at the front of the line to receive free money.

    I am at the back of the line to receive free money.
    $$$ ********************

    "at" "the" and "of" are particles that help define your "front/back" in relation to your sentence.
