    How to you say "a bit more than" or "a few more than"?

    For example, in a sentence such as "a bit more than $10", or "a few more than 50%".

    Is it "un peu plus que" ...?

    I'm not actually sure that it's very good English, but it is something I say - and hear said. :)

    Thanks.

    You're almost there: it's 'un peu plus de...'.

    I'd say
    "a bit more than" = "un peu plus que"
    "a few more than" = "à peine plus que"
    But others may disagree...

    In your examples I'd say "un peu plus de" but in some cases "un peu plus que" could work.
