How long is 500 words?

Sorry for being dumb, but how long is 500 words of an essay with standard formatting? How many pages should I write?
A 500-word essay usually runs between 1 and 2 pages. If you use the standard format with 12-point Times New Roman font, double-spacing, and 1-inch margins, it'll be closer to 2 pages. If it's single-spaced, it will be about 1 page long.
