But if you change the size of the periods, or even adjust the margins slightly inwards, how does it make the paper longer?  Isn't it still the same amount of words?


This is a paper length paper. Not a certain amount of words.


Oh, I see...that is very crafty then.


Haha. Yep. It increases at least half a page depending on how long it already is.

It has the spacing of a size 14 font with the size 12 words.  If i were you, i'd just do the assignment normally.  Shortcuts never help in the long run.  If you take the time to do a good job, you will be much more satisfied with yourself in the end.  Cheating will only hurt you.
 
I'm surprised at all the cheating in schools nowadays.  It makes me worry of what will come in the future.

I'm not doing it to reach a certain length. It just increases the overall girth of the paper, and it makes it more note worthy. I don't believe she gave a specific length it had to be, and his paper was already around 5 pages. It would have been fine without the lengthening, but he did it to make it seem longer. I don't see a problem with that.
