"Qual è il vostro totale?"

Translation:What is your total?

I didn't get what it means.

It could refer to the total of points, to the total in a division/subtraction, to the total of a bill... Anyway, something that involves counting, maybe different people are trying to count without pen and paper and mobiles to count for them and since nobody can count anymore they drive crazy and don't know any more what could be the total result.

I wouldn't use this sentence on a regular basis, anyway. Like many here on Duo. ;)

Many of the sentences here are nonsensical or weird so that you remember them. In Dutch, for example, the senteces are hilarious. I don't think I will ever forget how to spell "banana" in Dutch because they had this "I am a banana" sentence that reduced me to tears along with the comments.

There is a game in Holland, called: 'Ben ik een banaan?' It is a well-known game where everybody is something and you have to ask the right questions to find out who you are. For many sentences here I feel they are a little weird, but mostly somebody who is an native speaker can explain them to me.

just like the "i am the cheese" norwegian sentence. still laughing because of this.

Yeah but many times they make me second guess myself because it doesnt make sense

Is it possible to use another words order: "Qual e il totale vostro?"?

Ahh, Duolingo, teaching people how to cheat on math tests..

I can’t hear the “il” at normal speed, only when I play the slowed-down audio.

Is this correct? Are the articles before possessives sometimes barely pronounced, or not pronounced at all?

Total of what?

August 12, 2018


In my opinion, the context here is referring to the total price of something, like a meal or a purchase. So "how much is the total price?"

Seriously, "qual" can mean how much or how many here. But you get dinged, unless you write "what".

March 14, 2013


quale = what, which, quante = how much, how many

November 18, 2018


Perhaps "qual" can mean all those things, but in English, you can only say "WHAT is your total". "How much is your total or "How many is your total" are simply NOT CORRECT English. Wait- actually, I misspoke. If there are many totals on a page, and different people arrived at different totals, you COULD ask "Which is your total". But that is a sentence that would rarely be used.

I have heard and used "how much is your total"

April 3, 2013


I have also heard and used "how much" in this context, but for Duolingo, it is currently marked wrong.

August 5, 2015


I think that the right answer is "which"! not what! i'm wrong?

March 25, 2013


My dictionary has 'qual' as what and 'quale' as which. Is this right? Unfortunately i answered before checking.

April 3, 2013


Qual is a contraction of quale that is only used before e' (is). Unlike Dov'e, it is not written as qual'e but as qual e. Therefore qual and quale are both "which" but sometimes also "what". (Sorry I can't put the accents in this post)

Audio for this one goes like "Qual el vostro totale". Reporting...

April 5, 2015


could it mean "how many of you in total?" i.e. How many of there are you?

May 28, 2015


I think it means what is your aggregate or calculation am i right

I guess someone asks their friends how much money they have left together at the moment, because he or she discovered something in a shop but doesn't carry enough cash right now. But the English sentence sounds odd to me.

May 11, 2018


Does it means "What is your result?" ?

September 4, 2018


Why can't it mean "Which one is your total?"

April 18, 2019


isn't "what is yours in total" the correct english phrase for this sentence? Without your explanations I wouldn't have checked what this sentence means...never heard this before

A total is a sum, and a sum consists of parts, so what constitutes the total must be specified or it is not a complete sentence.

July 2, 2016


So, here the totale is strictly about numbers and amount, and has nothing to do with total=big picture = opinion??.?

Is this sentence about soliciting a working gal for her services?
