If you've just said something to someone and they respond with ¿(Y) qué más da? they have just said, "So what," "I don't care," or "What does it matter?"

Yeah, I agreed with you, Rusty, the word Que mas da.

This sentence can you use in a lot things as idioms, for example somebody is telling you something, and really to you don't care the he is telling you, then can you say (No me importa), or (Que mas da).

Another Example: Que mas da que no trabaje hoy.

Hey, Rusty you know of some Radiostation in online, what can I hear in my computer, because sometimes in my word I'm bored and I need hear something, if you've some Radio Station but of preference, what the Radio Station be of U.S.A. Such can I practice English.

Congrats.

I agree with Rusty's translations, and the option you've given Poli, what difference does it make, is also a valid translation.

I've also heard it used when someone gives up hope .....there's no recourse..... no consolation...... no way out.......

¡Qué más dá!

Another example of the use of Que mas da.

Part 1. Jorge comment: Oye el pasado Jueves no fuimos a la FEUCAR.
Part 2. Oscar Comment: Bueno Jorge que mas da, como quiera, aun si tenemos que ir hoy.

At least, the used widely of Que mas da, it's very used in the quotidian life.

Regards.

Life and love, it ain't hate you.

Debes decir:
Qué más da is very common and is used all the time in daily life.

cotidiano = daily

The word quotidian does exist, but is a very unusual word.

What does FEUCAR mean?

If que más da means; What does it matter?, no way out..., what would ¡Que va! mean?

  • !Qué va! means No. It's an emphasising and colloquial way to say no.
  • ¿Qué más da? means What difference does it make? / what does it matter?
