This one was easy... but good!

I figured she could weigh the pot, then then an apricot(most would have similar weight), then weigh the jar etc etc, but I didn't know they had pits, kudos to mary for not doing it my way ;P

Good,butI must be slow cause i couldn't get it

Cute n.n; ... but there could have been countless other ways she knew, eh? like maybe she knew how many apricots she had put in Oo; .... clever, eh? *im canadian, eh?* :|
