How M&M's can fit in a quart jar?

About 1,012 M&M's chocolates fit in a quart jar.

A simple calculation can be done to estimate the number of chocolates that fit inside:

1. We know that the capacity of a quart jar is 946.352946 cubic centimeters (32 fl oz).
2. Determine the volume of a single M&M. In case you’re curious, average size is .636 cubic centimeters.
3. Calculate the percentage of the total volume the chocolates take up in the jar. Because of their unique shape, M&M’s poured randomly occupy 68% of the volume.
4. Divide your estimate for the size of a single M&M into 68% of the volume of the jar.

So that would be:

• 68% of 946.352946 = 643.52000328
• 643.52000328 /.636 = 1011.82390453

It’s been a while since we attended school, and age hasn’t been kind to our memory either. As time passes, most of us lose much of our mathematical abilities, leading us to rely more and more on calculators.
