Visualizing Concepts

Consider the jar of jelly beans in the photo. To get an estimate of the number of beans in the jar you weigh six beans and obtain masses of 3.15, 3.12, 2.98, 3.14, 3.02, and 3.09 g. Then you weigh the jar with all the beans in it, and obtain a mass of 2082 g. The empty jar has a mass of 653 g. Based on these data estimate the number of beans in the jar. Justify the number of significant figures you use in your estimate. [Section]

Justify the number ofsignificant figures you use in your estimate. [Section] Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 3 Average can be calculated as sum of all samples divided by number of samples.Where A is the average, n is the number of terms and x the value of each sample. i
