Weighing M&M's

If you like brown M&M's, you are sure to be disappointed when you buy a bag. If, on the other hand, you like the green ones, by all means get out to the candy aisle right away! How do we know? Well, we just separated all of the colors in a giant bag of M&M's (for G's birthday party, we only wanted the red and blue ones), and just for kicks we weighed them. Here's what we found:
  • blue: 240g
  • yellow: 168g
  • green: 265g
  • brown: 154g
  • orange: 236g
  • red: 203g
That's a grand total of 1266g. The bag claims 1275.8g, and Matthew is pretty sure he ate more than the difference. Therefore, our scientific conclusion is that Mars Snackfood US, LLC does not lie. Bravo, Mars Snackfood US, LLC!

Hmmm... should we do percentages? Eh, we'll save that for you to do at home, you know, for fun.
