# Guess numbers of candies in jar-method?

filet
Is there any methods or tips or maths methods you use to guess number of candies in jar?

Not really. You can get an accurate guess, though. I've done it a few times in the past and am always within 5% or so. It all comes down to counting the number that you can see, drawing it out on paper, and estimating the volume of the jar (and this is assuming that the candies you cannot see are about the same size as the ones that you can see).

You're right...
But you can calculate it, if you calculate what the volume of the jar is, and also the volume of the candy, and than you can calculate it very accurate...
