    worth ten times the price

    Dear all,

    If I say, "This dictionary is very useful. I bought it for five pounds, but it's worth ten times the price!", does it make sense?


    Thank you!

    Re: worth ten times the price

    It makes sense. I would probably say "... but it's worth ten times that!"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
