How many words generally fit on a letter-sized sheet?

A sentence averages eleven words, and a letter-sized of paper sheet averages 32 to 35 sentences. Therefore, a normal-sized sheet of paper with a standard layout, based on 80-90% coverage contains about 350 to 400 words.

Microsoft Word has a function that shows you how many words your document contains. You can find this word count function under Tools, Word Count. This word count is not always correct, however, because Microsoft Word doesn’t count the words that are contained in pictures or text boxes. In some versions, MS Word doesn’t count the words in headers/footers.
