    fewer people/not as many people

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-Fewer people went to the nightclubs than stayed home.


    2-Not as many people went to the nightclubs than stayed home.


    I think they are both correct and mean the same.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: fewerr people/not as many people

    'Fewer than'
    'Not as many as'

    So 2 should be 'Not as many people went to the nightclubs as stayed home'.

    They mean the same.
