Q:

How many pages is a 4,000-word essay?

A:

In general, the writer can expect a 4,000-word essay to run about nine pages if it is single spaced. The number of pages in a 4,000-word essay varies considerably depending on factors like font, number of paragraphs and spacing.

One good way to determine how many pages there are in an essay with a set number of words is to use a traditional dummy text called "lorem ipsum," which is a Latin text frequently used by visual designers to see the visual feel of a design stripped of content. On Microsoft word, using single spaced, 12-point Times New Roman Font with 20 paragraph breaks, 4,000 words of "lorem ipsum" comes out to about seven pages. With standard MLA formatting, including double spacing, it comes out to about 14 pages. Font affects this considerably; a single-spaced essay in 12-point Verdana, for example, comes to nine pages.
