The Least and The Fewest

buzz this
What's the difference between "the least" and "the fewest?" Confused?

The least is the superlative form of 'little' used with uncountable nouns.

Ex: Juani does the least work of anyone in class.

The fewest is the superlative form of 'few' used with countable nouns.

Ex: Maria has made the fewest mistakes on the test than anyone in class.
