Various educators teach rules governing the length of paragraphs. They may say that a paragraph should be 100 to 200 words long, or be no more than five or six sentences. But a good paragraph should not be measured in characters, words, or sentences.
If using a word processing program, 5,000 words is the same as 10 pages of A4 with single spacing, or 20 pages of A4 with double spacing. In both cases, the font and margins will be the same: 12pt Arial or Times New Roman (or another standard, easy-to-read font), and margins of 1 inch with regular paragraph spacing.
Again, this is something only you know. And, again, you will need to time yourself. IF you are like me (and there is absolutely no reason that should be so) THEN, you will need 5 typed, double-spaced pages, for a 10-minute speech. However, again, this means that you will speak continuously for 10 minutes.
How Many Words per Page?
|Word Count||Pages (single-spaced)||Font Size|
|750 WORDS||1½ PAGES||12 POINT|
|800 WORDS||1⅗ PAGES||12 POINT|
|1,000 WORDS||2 PAGES||12 POINT|
|1,200 WORDS||2⅖ PAGES||12 POINT|
Writing 500 words will take about 12.5 minutes for the average writer typing on a keyboard and 25 minutes for handwriting. However, if the content needs to include in-depth research, links, citations, or graphics such as for a blog article or high school essay, the length can grow to 1.7 hours.
There's no set minimum or maximum, regardless of the type of report. I usually write about 250 words in each paragraph, ending up writing about 5 paragraphs. A sentence could be anywhere from 10 to 40 words (just as a guess--a sentence could be shorter or longer than that).
Answer: 200 words is 0.4 pages single-spaced or 0.8 pages double-spaced. Documents that typically contain 200 words are short memos, blog posts, or marketing copy. A 200 word count will create about 0.4 pages single-spaced or 0.8 pages double-spaced when using normal margins (1″) and 12 pt.
