    Hi Sarah!

    "mange" means "many" and is used when describing countable things or persons.
    "Det var mange bøker i bokhylla" = "There were many books in the bookshelf"
    "Jeg har mange blomster i hagen min" = "I have many flowers in my garden"
    "Hun inviterte mange gjester" = "She invited many guests"

    "mye" means "a lot"
    "Vi hadde mye å gjøre" = "We had a lot to do"
    "Det er mye snø ute" = "There is a lot of snow outside"
    "Han spiser mye ris" = "He eats a lot of rice"

    "masse" can both mean "many" and "a lot" but to a greater degree
    "Det er masse snø ute" = "There is a lot of snow outside"
    "Det var masse bøker i bokhylla" = "There were many/a lot of books in the bookshelf"
