В одном тексте есть следующая фраза:

Порядка 10% (россиян) проходили обучающие онлайн-курсы

Каково значение слова порядка в этом контексте? Я бы догадался, что оно такое же как "около". Но порядок переводится как "order" or "sequence" по-английски, и причём оно в родительном падеже.

Заранее спасибо за ответы.

Yes, this word means "approximately", "about". It is a preposition and it comes from gen.sg. of the word "порядок", which happens to be used as a term in maths (exponential form).


Порядок means "order of magnitude" here or just "around".

Of course, I don't think they meant strict mathematical meaning, but it's fair to assume it means between 3% and 30% of russans participated in online courses.
