The container is a glass mason canning jar, approximately 5 inches tall (13 cm) and 3 inches in diameter (7-8 cm).



The marbles are typical sized glass aggies, about 1/3 inch in diameter (10 mm).

The jar is filled completely to the top with the marbles.  Smiley

I found this jar of marbles over at my Dad's house a couple of weeks ago and took a picture of it.

How many marbles do you think is in the mason jar?

I will post the answer in one week!  Cheesy

Thanks Janice!!  Cheesy

How many do you think are in there?

In addition to voting, you all can post your answers!

I'll give you all a hint: there's more than 20 marbles in the jar, and less than 200!  Roll Eyes

Does that help??  Cheesy

Awww....you're so generous with the hints. I guess-timated 86!

Our local mall had an SUV filled with plastic water bottles and whoever guessed the closest won the vehicle. I guessed, but didn't win---it was a nice prize tho.

I guessed 140.
I counted the marbles I could see, then guessed what percentage that might be and multipilated my counted result. Then I added a bit, because people tend to underestimate the number.
