Then and Than

Unbelievably, people across all age groups and professions, tend to falter and make this mistake.

THEN is used to continue something said earlier, try to remember it as a link to the story...what happens next.

Let's take an example,
He went to the counter, asked for a pen and then simply signed the paper.

The word THAN is used for comparisons and mostly accompanies the Comparative Adjectives.

Example, He sings better than what his brother does.
