Answer: 5 sheets

I previously thought it to be 20 sheets, yet I was misguided reasoning you have the right to mail 3.5 ounces v one stamp. If friend mailed something the was 3.5 ounces, it would expense you one dollar. A solitary $0.55 stamp will just mail something that weighs ONE ounce.

You are watching: How much does a piece of paper weigh in oz

One item of mail, First-Class as of January 26, 2020:

Under one ounce: $0.55Under 2 ounces: $0.70Under 3 ounces: $0.85Under 3.5 ounces: $1.00

Here’s how I figured it out you have the right to mail five sheets through one $0.55 stamp:

500 sheets of document = 5.3 pounds5.3 pounds = 84.8 ounces84.8 ounces / 500 sheets of = 0.1696Each sheet of record weighs 0.1696 ounces1 ounces / 0.1696 ounces = 5.89623 sheets

Thus, you have the right to get five sheets under the one-ounce border of First-Class mail with one stamp.

You can ignore the image below, due to the fact that they display me do the efforts to ingredient 20 sheets right into one envelope.

You deserve to only letter 5 sheets v one stamp.
