.... 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.  :)

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.

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
