I have a 2000 word essay to do. I am allowed to go over or under by 10%. What is the minimum amount of words I can do and what is the maximum?

I also have a 1500 word essay to do. I am allowed to over or under by 10%. What is the minimum amount of words I can do and what is the maximum?

Thanks for your help

1800 - 2200
1350 - 1650

It's not exactly difficult to work out what 10% is...

I'm rubbish with numbers so I'd rather be sure of what I have to do.

Thanks

Just for future reference....

10% of 2000 is 200
10% of 1500 is 150

So add 200 onto 2000 for your maximum limit, and take away 200 for your minimum limit

And add 150 onto 1500 for your maximum limit, and take away 150 for your minimum limit
