Are you wondering how many words by page there is in a novel which has pages double spaced, your presentation, an essay which has pages single spaced, news articles or something else? You should know how many pages is 3000 words so you can orient yourself and calculate how much progress you should make so you can finish your work in time.
The thing is that the number of words and pages can variate a lot depending on the type of letters, are your pages double spaced or not, how many paragraphs do you have… So, about your 3000 words essay, here is all you need to know:
When it is all just typed textOrder now
If you in your text avoid any titles, subheadings and paragraphs trough your entire essay, and if all the words are for example times new roman 12, you will have four pages single spaced text. That doesn’t sound long, right?
Four pages single spaced sounds like that are something you could write in about two to three hours, all done in one sitting. But it is the words density of that text that matters. In this example, you will have to write about 752 words by page which is a lot.
Difference between pages single spaced and pages double spaced
But with every single paragraph you add, your text will get one line longer than before without changing any word count, and with fifty lines that can fit on a single page (margins set on 1 inch and page size a4), every space made after titles and subheadings, makes you, in the end, half to two pages longer text with same amount of words.
And that is just for pages single spaced. If you make pages double spaced, still without any paragraphs, subheadings, and titles, you will have eight pages, while having the same word count. Logically 1.5 spaced will get you six pages.
So, we added on pages single spaced those paragraphs and subheadings to these calculations, but never on pages double spaced… Well, there are 25 lines on pages double spaced so you will get 2 to 4 pages more. The thing is the best favor you could do for yourself is to get word count so you can follow your progress. 3000 words is a lot to write, no matter how many pages there are.
Let’s overview the word count and how many pages you need for a specific number of words.
