How many single-spaced typewritten pages will fit on a 3.5" floppy disk?
1.42 MB of data can fit on a floppy. That is about 1.5 million bytes. A text only document uses about 1 byte per letter. A single spaced typed page is about 4,000 letters including spaces. Thus about 375 pages of plain text fit onto a floppy.
