    Hi guys,

    Please check.

    "How much does it worth" or "How much its worth"

    "How much it might have worth".

    Re: Worth

    They are all incorrect. "How much is it worth?" is correct.

    Re: Worth

    How much is it worth?
    How much was it worth?
    How much had it been worth?
    How much will it be worth?

    How much might it be worth?
    How much might it have been worth?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Worth

    We use it to find out the cost of anything?

    No, we use it to find out the value of something.

    Re: Worth

    So what is the difference between "value" and "cost"?

    Re: Worth

    In many cases, quite a lot!!

    I bought a car ten years ago. In 2004, it cost 6000. It is now worth about 500.
    Many "vintage" or "antique" shops have items for sale which cost over 5000. They are probably worth a tenth of that.

    Have you looked up the Hindi words for cost, value and worth? Do they have the same meanings in Hindi?

    Oscar Wilde defined a "cynic" as "a man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing."

    As in English, Ems, it depends on the context. In a monetary sense they do have pretty much the same meaning.

    Re: Worth

    But in the show "Pawn stars" I have seen they say "What its worth" and then other guy tells the price of that thing.
