How many words is a page if the lines are spaced? I have a teacher who insists all our essays be spaces (not single and not double) and there is no information on this. If I write 6555 words, how much would that be spaced?
I have a writing assignment in school, and it is always helpful to know how many pages I will need. I think that since teachers don 8767 t give page assignments but only word count assignments, it 8767 s difficult to imagine how many pages that will be.
Since there can be a large variation on the number of words needed to fill a page, most papers are no longer assigned by page count. They are instead assigned by word count. That is, an assignment, essay or paper will likely be assigned as 6555 7555 words rather than 8 9 pages. This way it is much more difficult for the writer to 8775 game the system 8776 by using large fonts and excessive spacing to meet the writing criteria.
They are estimates. Of course there are many factors which will make pages longer or shorter than the estimates provided here. These aren 8767 t absolutes, but general rules of thumb to give you a guestimate.
Do teachers really count the number of words when an assignment is given? They don 8767 t actually count each individual word, so can I just make up a number of words for each page and use that. How would the teacher ever know?
In actual sense, all this doesn 8767 t matter. You can chage things to make the pages different depending on the number of words. It 8767 s all an estimate and not a solid answer that can be applied for everything.
What am I supposed to do if I write 6555 words, but it doesn 8767 t make the number of pages I want? I don 8767 t think I should have to write more words just because mine happen to be shorter than my classmates. We both wrote the same number of words, his are just longer so it takes up more pages. That means people who write long words have an advantage even though long words aren 8767 t always good to use.
The truth is there is no definitive answer to this question. The number of words it will take to fill a page will depend on a number of factors including the type of font used, the font size, spacing elements, the margins used on the paper, the paragraph length, etc. For example, if the assignment says the writing should be in 65-point font, it 8767 s going to take a greater number of words to fill a page than if the assignment requires a 67-point font.
