Tags: See more , See less 8 Answer Add Tags Answer Interview Answer 3 Answers ▲ 0 ▼ I can not recall I solve it at that time.. it is a pretty difficult question, needs a lot of assumptions Interview Candidate on May 22, 2012 ▲ 2 ▼ The way I tried to solve this is breaking 300 M population of US into social classes. I have the estimate of % pop of each class using wiki. Thereafter, for each class estimate the number of shoes for males and females separately.For each segment, I divided the #pairs each person could have for work, home/casual, Other/party. Sum up to get #pairs for each person in each segment. Finally get the weighted average of #pairs across all classes and multiply by the total population.My answer was: around 4 Billion csd on Dec 16, 2012 ▲ 0 ▼ I checked a link on the google which says that on an average 2.4 B shoes are sold in US in an year. csd on Dec 16, 2012 Interviews > Data Analyst > Enova Add Answers or Comments To comment on this, Sign In or Sign Up.
