Enter the total number of words and the average words per page into the Book Length Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Book Length. 

Book Length Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Book Length.

BL = W / WPP

  • Where BL is the Book Length (pages)
  • W is the total number of words 
  • WPP is the average words per page 

How to Calculate Book Length?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Book Length.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total number of words. 
    • The total number of words is given as: 10,000.
  2. Next, determine the average words per page. 
    • The average words per page is provided as: 100.
  3. Finally, calculate the Book Length using the equation above: 

BL = W / WPP

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

BL = 10,000 / 100 = 100.00 (pages)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total number of words = 11,000

average words per page = 400

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

BL = W / WPP = ?
