What does c. 450 words mean?

I have to write a reflection paper that is "c. 450 words." Does that mean a minimum or maximum of 450 words?

    It means circa/roughly 450 words. Probably best not to go over or under by more than 10 percent (which would be a range of 405-495 words)

    "c." stands for "circa," Latin for "about." So it should be approximately 450 words, maybe a little less or a little more.

    The "c." means "about" 450 words. It's an abbreviation for the Latin word "circa" which means "approximately" or "about."
