Je voudrais quinnze pommes v je voudrais une quinzaine de pommes?
If you wanted to say i would like 15 apples would you use quinze and une quinzaine de for about fifteen apples?
This question relates to:French lesson "Une dizaine = Ten or so (approximate numbers)"

Bonjour Jennifer !
If you wanted exactly 15 apples, then you'd use "quinze"."Une quinzaine de" is a way to give an approximate amount :)
Bonne journée !
