Tagalog translation:ilan sa atin
Explanation:
hi. please note the word-by-word translation below:

"how many" = "ilan" (also same for "how much")

"of" = "sa"

"us" = "atin"

thus: "Ilan sa atin..."

Note: you may wish to add the Tagalog word "ang" as equivalent to the either of the English words "is" or "are" (it's just the same), in order to conjunct the first part of your sentence with the rest, thus:

"Ilan sa atin ang..."

meaning:

"How many of us are..."

Hope this helps!
