Hi my name is Sandy and I did not find a formula, but as writers we can read the three pages per four books and eyeball long or short sentences, and paragraphs and document them. Then take an average sentenace or paragraph and compare. I am very detailed so I actually counted each of these word for word, but when my daughter looked at them, she basically picked out the same I had acually taken the time to count. Not saying by far mine is the best but if you would like me to send you a copy of what I submitted with my explainations I would be more than happy to do that. My e-mail is romomharris@msn.com. Just put some type of title stating writing course so if doesn't come to me I will look for it in my junk mail because we have ridiculas filters on our e-mail.

Hi heart13,

There isn't really a set formula for this question. As Colo.Sandy said, you can either be detailed and count everything out, or you can do a general estimate just by skimming over the page. It's up to you!

If you're still having trouble, feel free to contact the school and the Student Support Specialists would be happy to help!

Best Wishes,
