    Howmuchever work that much practice.

    1) You told me that we can say "you need to spend equal hours for working as you do practicing". It means equal hours for both work and practice.

    2) Can we say "I have to spend equal hours for other things as I do working"?

    3) Howmuchever work that much practice. (I read this one in the caption of a video. Is it correct?)

    Could you please check my sentences?

    Re: Howmuchever work that much practice.

    Wherever you saw the sentence 3, it's a disaster. Ignore it. It's completely ungrammatical and I have no idea what it's supposed to mean.

    This is your third post in 15 minutes. We have told you before that you should not post too many questions at one time. Please don't post any more until these three have been thoroughly dealt with and you are certain you understand any responses.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Howmuchever
    In the U.S., "howmuchever" (which I didn't think even existed) would need to be "however much."

    Captions of Youtube videos are mostly wrong. You'd be better off without them.

    2) Can we say "I have to spend equal hours for other things as I do working"? Is this one correct?

    Re: Howmuchever work that much practice.

    That is not natural at all. I think we said in the previous thread that we would say "You need to spend the same amount of time doing other things as you do working".
