An organization has the following specs for submitted articles: (a) maximum of 15 characters per 2.5 cm (b) maximum of 6 lines per 2.5 cm (c) minimum font size of 10 (d) Computer Modern font (e) 2.5 cm margins. Assuming an ``average text'', how can I maximize the number of words per page with such constraints? It appears to me that with font size of 10 you get more than 15 characters per inch, so I am not sure if the specs are all that well stated. (To be conservative, or to make calculation easier, I suppose by 2.5 cm we can assume they meant one inch.) A related article is 6 lines per inch.
