To find readability formulas for the given scenario, you can start by using online resources that provide readability devices such as Flesch, Fog, SMOG, etc. You can search for these formulas on search engines like Google by using keywords like "readability formulas." This search will provide you with various links that contain these readability devices.

Another option is to use Microsoft Word if it is your word processing program. You can open a new document on Word and paste the text into it. Then, press the F1 key or click on Help and enter "readability" to get directions on how to calculate readability in Word.

In this specific scenario, to calculate the readability, you can copy and paste the two sentences into a Word document. The Word document will provide the counts for words, characters, paragraphs, and sentences. Additionally, it will also provide the readability statistics, including the percentage of passive sentences, Flesch reading ease, and Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level.

Interpreting the readability statistics is subjective and depends on the context and audience. For example, the Flesch reading ease score of 68.0 indicates that the text is fairly easy to read, with higher scores indicating easier readability. The Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level of 8.7 suggests that the text can be comprehended by someone with a reading level of around 8th or 9th grade.

Ultimately, it is important to consider the target audience and the purpose of the text while interpreting the readability statistics.
