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.

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.  Smiley

.... 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.  Smiley

Ready for the answer??  Cheesy


There are......




............ 114 marbles in the canning jar!!  Cheesy


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!!  Cheesy


Thanks to everyone who played the game.  Smiley


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

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.Cool = 107 marbles

How'd I do?
