Comparación de igualdad
       In English, we often compare two items that have the same characteristics. We might
       say that the two items are alike or equal.

       When we are talking about two characteristics with equal qualities, we use the
       expression as…as in English.
              1. To compare equal qualities in Spanish, we use tan…..como with either an
                 adjective or an adverb.
              The adjective or adverb comes IN BETWEEN tan and como.
                     •      John is as tall as I am.                                                                Juan es tan alto como yo.
                     •      We play as well as he.                                                                  Nosotros jugamos tan bien como él.

       When we are talking about two characteristics with equal quanities, we use the as
       much…as or as many…as in English.
              2. To compare equal quantities in Spanish, we use tanto…como with nouns.

              The noun comes IN BETWEEN tanto and como.

              *Because tanto is an adjective it has to agree with the noun it modifies. Therefore,
              there are four forms: tanto, tantos, tanta, tantas.

                     •      I have as many cars as he has.                                                           Yo tengo tantos carros como él.
                     •      He has as much money as I.                                                               Él tiene tanto dinero como yo.

       Fill in the blanks with either tan…como or tanto…como.
       1. Nosotros somos ______________ ricos______________ellos.
       2. La música es_______________clara______________agua.
       3. Los chicos tienen _______________carros______________sus padres.
       4. Mercedes es ______________simpática _______________ Carla.
       5. El hospital de la ciudad tiene______________pacientes_____________el hospital del campo.
       6. Carmen estudia ____________horas______________Pancho.
       7. Las chicas comen_______________comida_____________los chicos.
       8. Yo juego_____________bien______________mi hermano.
       9. Ella tiene ______________libros_________________ ellos.
       10. Señorita Yémez es_____________alta______________ yo.
       11. Pedro y Antonio están_____________enfermos _________________su madre.
