a large jar contains 500 marbles suppose you have an identical empty jar how would you find the mass of one marble

  • math -

    1. Find the masses of each jar.

    2. Subtract the empty jar from the jar with marbles.

    3. Divide by 500!

    4. Tada!

    Ex: Jar w/ marbles: 600 grams
    Empty Jar: 100 grams

    Jar w/ marbles - Jar = 500 grams
    500 grams/ 500 = 1 gram (one marble = 1 gram)
