I would guess about 220 pages, but that's from applying numerology during the phase of the moon. Do I win anything if I'm right?

I'm editing a biography that runs to just over 350 pages in manuscript
form, including Endnotes and Index. It's currently in 12-point Times New
Roman font with a 6.5" line length. It runs about 89,000 words. My author
is trying to figure out how many pages that would be in a standard- size
7.5" x 9.0" or 7.5" x 10.0" (or other standard-size) book.

Does anyone have any formulas or guidelines that would help in this
calculation? I'd appreciate any help you could give.
