Hello, I am lost and don't understand I need to find the readiblity formula for this scenario. The trip scheduled for Mexico has been cancelled due to the bankruptcy of the bus company. You must tell 25 of your classmates that the trip has been cancelled and that they have lost their \$100. deposit. How will you convey the info and still uphold there goodwill toward you? Thanks

"The trip scheduled for Mexico has been cancelled due to the bankruptcy of the bus company. You must tell 25 of your classmates that the trip has been cancelled and that they have lost their \$100 deposit. How will you convey the info and still uphold there goodwill toward you?"

I copied and pasted the above passage into a Word document and then typed READABILITY into the help search box. I have Word 2003, so the readability process is built into the spelling and grammar check process. It told me these things about the readability in this passage:

Passive sentences = 66%
Flesch-Kinkaid Grade Level = 7.4 (meaning it would take someone reading on grade level in 7th grade, 4th month of the school year to understand the passage)

=)
