I have a big doubt:-‘enough’ is used before the noun-‘I don’t have enough money to pay the bill’.or ‘enough qualifications to get the job’,‘enough money to get a taxi’ BUT
enough is also used after a adjective:-‘rich enough to buy the whole town.‘or’ patient enough’;

  • Is there a rule of the position of ‘enough’ in a sentence?How can we know if ‘enough’ is used before or after the noun/adjective?
    Thank you!

Enough as an adverb meaning ‘to the necessary degree’ goes after adjectives and adverbs.

Enough goes before nouns, and means ‘as much as is necessary’. In this case it is not an adverb, but a ‘determiner’.
