5 % have one shoe each = 1000 shoes

PLUS half of the rest (19000/2 = 9500) have

two shoes each (9500 x 2) = 19000 shoes

Total = 20,000 shoes

One thousand one legged people wear

one thousand shoes, not 500!!!

(I think)

]]>And therefore there are 19,000 with two legs.

If half go barefoot then there would be 19,000/2 who wear two sandals and 1,000 who wear one sandal.

19,000/2 x 2 + 1000/2 x 1 = 19,000 + 500 = 19,500.

Is this right?
