Davos Courses guessing game—The riddle's answer

During this year's Davos courses, AORecon held a guessing game. A sculpture was displayed at the AORecon booth, along with the question: "How many 40g packs of bone cement is this sculpture made of?" The participants' range of estimates about the sculpture's weight, volume, and density were stunning. In addition, it was impressive to see how creative people were in coming up with solutions.

Here are the winners and their bets:

L. Gala (Italy) 56
J. Valle (Spain) 56
F. Peters (Netherlands) 57
M. Altamirano (Mexico) 57
A. Urda (Spain) 57
E. Hermans (Netherlands) 58
T. Hagen (Switzerland) 58
R. Omar (Singapore) 59
M. Amirabadian (Iran) 60
L. Freitag (Switzerland) 60
A. Leuci (Italy) 60
S. Meier (Germany) 63
A. Wajnsztejn (Brazil) 66

Congratulations to the lucky ones!
