How many sharpies does it take to create the mass of Jon

Wild Guess 9


  • Jon Lowe is 72.8 lbs (33.02152 kilograms)
  • Sharpies are 7.5 lbs (3.40194 kilograms)
It would take 10 sharpies to fit Jon’s mass

72.8 ÷ 7.5 =9.07666 (rounded 10)

  1. not all sharpies are the same but most are about 7.5 lbs
