    what time does it take

    Hi, there.
    I've learned that 'what' sometimes has the meaning of 'how much(many)', so may I replace my usual 'how much time does it take?' with 'what time does it take?' ? Is it correct and is it being used in a speech by the english speaking people? Is it possible to say that one of these is more used?
    Thanks in advance.

    Re: what time does it take

    I am not a teacher.

    No, sorry. "What time does it take?" is not English.
