    No correct answers as of yet.

    No half dollars. Just quarters, dimes and nickels.

    The weight will also be a clue. The total number of coins will be a clue. A near ratio of quarters to dimes to nickels will also be a clue. Not an exact ratio but a rounded off ratio. That should put you very close.

    Toward the end I will be randomly giving the actual numerals in the amount. For example if the amount is $12.34 then I will say that one of the numbers is a 3. Next clue I might say another number is a 1... until all numbers are given. I will then start with the last digit and give the amount in reverse. IE... $xx.x4, $xx.34, $x2.34... until a correct guess comes in.

    If you can figure out the amount within a few dollars after the first set of clues, then when I start giving the numbers in the amount of the coins you should have a jump on the competition who are waiting til the very end to be the first one.

    This is why you only get limited guesses. A person could just sit down and start typing off numbers until they hit the amount.

    Good luck

    I think I see some Chuck E. Cheese tokens in there.

    I'm going with $ 83.65

    I'm putting no value on the Chuck E. Cheese Tokens

    Another observation - Even though the dimensions of the bowl are not given one can still establish a rough diameter at the top of the bowl by figuring the width of one of the quarters at the rim and imagining how many more quarters to get to the other end of the rim....

    I believe some of those better versed in geometry may come up with a formula that could narrow the guess to a 10 dollar spread...

    For instance I believe at this point the amount to be no less than 25$ and no more than 50$ - just by looking at the the amount of quarters cross the rim. The depth and taper make it a little trickier....

    I think it's more than that. Just a handful of change can fool you. Just 20 quarters makes $5.00 and I'm sure there are a lot more than 20 in there. You can easily hold $10.00 worth of change in 1 hand and to me it looks like at least 8-10 handfuls of change in the bowl.
