So, I'm sure most (if not all) of you are familiar with those "Guess how many jellybeans there are" contests. Well, I figured I could get some of you to share your educated guesses with me. With this post, I have included pictures of theFACE,SIDE, andBOTTOMof the container. Also, I got the kid holding the container in the picture to drop me a "hint." He says, "The container is filled withEIGHT large $0.99 bags of jellybeans. Assuming that someone out there has bought one of these bags before, we can figure out how many jellybeans are in one bag, and from there, figure out how many are in the container. And of course, the prize is all the jellybeans.

I need a decent guess by as late asTHURSDAY (4/17/03)!!

If you're thinking of some fancy method that involves measuring the weight: I'm not allowed to empty the container!! Perhaps there is an alternative method...? Tomorrow (the 16th), I plan on getting some measurments on the container. They have an identicle container to the one holding the jellybeans that they use to collect the guesses in, so I could measure that one.

Thanks to anyone who helps!!

I refer anyone to this great site: How many 76 antenna balls did we fit in a Chevy Trailblazer?

AND PLEASE: If you're going to reply to this post, please keep it constructive! There isn't much time until my guess has to be in, and I need all the time to work this out I can get!
