Diamond Estimation

Hello and this is my estimation:

Estimate how many diamond blocks.

These are all the diamond blocks; can you estimate how many?


  1. Well done Pablo - you are the first to give us an estimation challenge!

    (I've taken your answer off, because we will need to find a way of hiding it.)

    I like this challenge because there are two kinds of estimation:

    1. Where you have all the information to find the actual answer, but estimation can give you a near answer without difficult calculation.

    2. Where there isn't all the information to find the actual answer, so you can only estimate.

    You've given us one of the first type, which we don't get so often!

  2. Hello Pablo,
    It is an interesting question, thanks for sharing.

    My Estimation is 993.
    Am I close?
