What does "Kaç tane sıfır var?" mean?
I can imagine asking "How many zeros are there?" when talking about digits in a phone number.
I can also imagine asking "How many zeros are there?" when talking about quantities in a stock take, when several products are out of stock (possible answer: "two zeros; no apples and no oranges").
I can also imagine asking "How many zeros are there?" about an algebraic problem (possible answer: "it's quadratic, so it has two zeros").
I can even imagine asking "How many zeros are there?" as a more abstract mathematical question (with an answer something like "there is exactly one number n such that n+m=m for all m; that number is zero").
Does "Kaç tane sıfır var?" apply to any or all of these situations?
I am thinking about all those high-denomination Turkish banknotes from the 1990's, with a bank customer noticing the TL 10,000,000 for the very first time before spluttering, "Kaç tane sıfır var???!!!"
I live in Turkey ... they use the word (Sıfır) when talking about new products "sıfir cep - ekencı cep" new phone - Secondhand phone
What does exactly mean tane?
If kaç is how much or how many, what is tane?
I thought I could say: kaç sıfır var?
