Most people confuse the words then and than. Here is the answer:
Than is a conjunction used with comparisons.
- For example: Laika is smaller than Sam.
- For example: When I looked at my money, I had less than I thought I had.
Then is an adverb or an adjective that refers to the time in the past or the future.
- For example: They say machines will do all the work in the future, but I think I'll be retired by then.
- For example: The whole family had a leisurely breakfast. We then went outside to enjoy the beautiful weather.
