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.  :)

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!  :D

Thanks Janice!!  :D

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!  ::)

 ;)  ;)

Does that help??  :D

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 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.

I estimated 96, then looked at the choices, and it's not one of them.  I'll be bold and say 102.  Or should I say 86?  No, I'll go with 102.  :)

.... I'm guessing 102.

Lets see .... .... you can see  4 in the bottom layer at the front .... so there are probably 4 at the back.... .... so there's perhaps space for about 4 in the middle....   .... so if each layer has 12 marbles and there are about 8 layers then 8 x 12 = 96  plus 6 extra in the lid ....   .... = 102!!


Susie, that's LITERALLY exactly how I arrived at my guess too, the 96 and everything.  :)

Wow!!!! You all are much better with the math than I am!! I don't think I'm quite that smart.

One BIG difference though.... I already KNOW how many marbles are in the jar!!   ;)

 :laugh:  :laugh:

But you all made some pretty good guesses.  I'm very impressed!  :D

Ready for the answer??  :D


There are......




............ 114 marbles in the canning jar!!  :D


I've taken a picture of the marbles. I divided the marbles into 11 piles of 10, and you will see the extra 4 marbles over on the left!




You can count them if you want to!!  :D


Thanks to everyone who played the game.  :)


And congratulations to those of you who guessed the correct number!!  :D

The jar is filled with about 0.52 liters of marbles.  The marbles, "aggies," are about 11/16 inches in diameter, or about 0.34 inches in RADIUS (not diameter, as stated).  This gives the marbles a volume of about 2.8 cc's each.

The ratio of marbles to air looks to be about 0.58 to 0.42.  So, I am going to guess that there are:

(520)(0.58)/(2.8) = 107 marbles

How'd I do?
