How long does it take the average person to write 100 words?

im doing a timed essay soon at school, and i just want to know how much i can write roughly in the time given. So, i need to know how long it would take the average person to write 100 words and about how many words would fit on an A4 piece of writing paper. Thanks :)

    It would take me about a minute and like ten seconds, give or take. But you can fit a lot more than 100 words on a page. It also depends on how you set your page up too. Usually in school they have to do double spaced, which, of course, is going to lower your word count considerably. Double spaced: about 300 to 350. Single spaced: haha about double.

    it would take me a couple of minutes but it's different for everyone

    i can fit around five hundred on a page - thats back and front so about 250 on one side but once again that depends on the person writing cos my writing is tiny
