Different people have different handwriting styles, but on average, between three and four pages of handwriting fills a typed page if you use single spacing. If you use double spacing, of course, you get between one and two typed pages. Another factor that influences your outcome is whether you use college-ruled paper or wide-rule paper. College-ruled paper has more lines on it which means you fit more handwriting onto one page.
