    這是一個蠻有難度的問題

    本人意見如下

    1.兩者雖然都有計算的意義

    但calculate它還有事前估算的意義count則否

    也就是說calculate應比count更有縝密之感

    e.g

    I'm caculating how much paint we need.

    就不能說I'm counting how much paint we have need.

    因為這是還沒油漆以前來估算多少漆料

    I'm counting how much paint we used .

    用count時就是在算賬了(已用了多少油漆)

    2.同樣caculate是使用已有的事物證據去猜測某個數值

    e.g

    Reserchers caculated that this group was at a higher risk of heart disease.

    而count the cost 計算錯誤的估算或決定所造成之損失

    e.g

    We are now counting the cost of not taking out medical insurance.

    總之一個是事前計算一個是事後諸葛

    3.而count則是以一種特別的方式去考慮某事to consider sth.or sb. in a particuler way

    e.g

    I don't count him as a friend any more.

    4.caculate on 與 count on 意義也不同

    caculate on =>if you caculate on something ,you are depending on it for your plans to succeed.

    count on =>to depend on someone or something ,especially in a difficult situation

    TYPO CORRECTION:

    I'm counting how much paint we have used .

    用count時就是在算賬了(已用了多少油漆)

    由counter與calculator也可以知道兩者的差別

    counter是計數器或收銀臺簡單的計算機

    calculator是計算機可以作複雜運算

    我们作功課是不用 counter的

    用的是calculator

    counter頂多作機械的累計

    好比網站上計算 瀏覽人數的東東

    叫counter不叫caculator

    由這可體會count與calculate之差別

    calculate

    計算尤其是指用數學的方法,如 "to calculate the velocity of light." 計算光速,"calculating the team's chances of winning." 計算球隊贏球的勝算;"We must measure and calculate to determine how much paint will be needed." 我們要量測然後計算才能決定需要多少油漆;以上都不能用 count 來取代。

    count 雖然也是算,但是算人頭的算而非計算。如 "He counted his tickets and found he had ten. " 他算一算他的票發現一共十張,"Close your eyes and count ten. 閉上你的眼睛算到十 ;"There are five of us here, counting me. 這兒連我一共五個人;to count to 100 by fives. 以五的倍數算到一百;"She counted three times before she was satisfied that none was missing." 她數了三次才滿意一個都沒有少;在以上的例子都只能用 count,不能用 calculate;還有一個用法 "You can always count on him to lend you money. " 你隨時都可以依賴他來借給你錢,也是不能用 calculate 來取代。

    Calculate 是指加減乘除的運算 / 計算

    例如: calculate GPA, calculate percentage

    Count 是指"數"的具體動作

    例如: count by two- 2, 4, 6, 8, 10....

    calculate和count都有計算的意思其涵義上有何差別?用法時機為何?

    count = say or name the numerals in order, 按順序數數目。

    calculate = find out by working with numbers, 計算。

    由以上解釋可看出 count 的計算涵義著重用於數數目,例如:

    Count from one to ten.

    calculate 的計算涵義著重用於數字之演算,例如:

    Calculate the cost of a journey.
