2 students from Brigham Young University have come up with an app to help you win those candy jar guessing games. You know the game, you go to a fair, a craft show or other event and someone is giving away a cool prize if you can guess how many pieces of candy are in the jar.
Well using basic physical properties of both jars and a variety of candies including m&m’s, hershey kisses, jelly beans, and more, the Candy Jar Estimator app can calculate an estimate of how many candies can possibly be in the jar. In most cases with these types of contests you only need to be closest to the actual number of candies.
