    많아 is an adjective/descriptive verb. It's usually found at the end of the sentence e.g. 사람이 많아 (there are many people)

    많이 is an adverb, so a verb/adjective has to follow. E.g. 많이 했어 (I/you did a lot)

     

    많-아 is conjugated form from 많다. 많다 means to be a large number of or a large amount of.

    많이 is a derivative of 많다.
