How to Calculate Jelly Beans in a Jar?

Answer

Is there a jellybean contest you are wanting to enter? Scared you'll be way off with your guess? Fear not, because there is a mathematical way you can calculate the number of jellybeans in a jar. If you're not too good with math and are able to hold the container of beans, pick it up and count the number of jellybeans that are on the bottom layer. Then, count how many jellybeans are in one column all the way to the top of the jar. Multiply these together for a very good estimate.
