她的电话号码是多少?

Can someone roughly break down the sentence for me. It's hard for me to comprehend for some reason.

Thank you! Just like if someone could explain each sector of the sentence. Thanks so much if you help!! <3<3

她 = she

的 = possessive particle

电话 = telephone (literally: eletricity + word)

号码 = number (literally: number + code)

是 = to be

多少 = how many (literally: many + little)

Of course the words change their meaning when they're together, however it's very useful to know which characters are "making" each word. The 多少 part is different, it's a bit like "how little" but means "how much", which also sounds unfamiliar in this context.
