Let's start with the US market: 300X10^6 people. About 60% use shampoo (others are bald or use soap). They go through about one bottle every two months, so that is about 1.8X10^9. Human population is about 6.6 X 10^9. As far as the undeveloped nations, most people don't use shampoo. The developed world is about four times the size of the US population or approximately 1.2 X 10^9. People in the US wash their hair more than in Europe, but I will neglect this. My estimate is about 5X10^9 bottles.
Enough to wash everyone's hair.

15 * 10^9
Could you please provide more info. Does this include sample size & super size bottles?
yeah ok inwiill be more b=vernose butvwhatvthe fucj do youwnat me tinsay?

I would assume 6 billion people in the world- 50% use shampoo others just use regular soap. Assume that we are using some std sze bottle ~15oz. With daily use of 1/2 oz/day a bottle would be used in 1 month (probably close for US and western counties). However men use less than women and developing coutries would likely not shampoo daily. Generous estimate is a bottle lasting 1.5 months. Therefore each person uses 8 bottles /year. 8 x 3 billion is 24 billion bottles

1. Production is always>consumption because we have more product varieties to sell 2. We never see any shop with out of stock shampoo products, forget brands in this case. 3. Even if we consider 50 per population uses shampoo, they will never run out of shampoo because not everybody uses one bottle/person. A family might use one bottle.
Enough to wash everyone's hair and keep bathrooms, store shelves, and warehouses stocked. A s a sales person, I'd be more concerned with how many bottles of shampoo can be moved from one place to another in a year as this is what generates revenue.

All of them.
Lets look again at the question- it is not 'how many bottles of shampoo are USED" the question clearly states "how many bottles of shampoo are PRODUCED in the world in a year". It interests me to note that this is a production question for a software engineer position which clearly leads me to determine that the answer is not meant to be a number but a program or mathmatical equation of some sort. There is not enough information listed to solve to any given number with so many variables, and it is not safe to assume that 50% of the population uses shampoo or how many people are bald. The idea is to take the information given and develop a method to calculate the numerical value if the actual values are supplied.
I answered that I had years of experience in both customer service, retail and I was advanced in computer skills.
How long after applying did you hear from them?
After I interviewed I was told that the next training class started in a month and where and when I was to appear. I was given a urine test for drugs right after the interview, so I assumed at this point I was hired immediately. And I was. I received an email in 3 days after the drug test and background check welcoming me to the HSN family. If I only knew then what I know now, I would have ean the other way
I am in school earning a degree in accounting and feel that H&R Block will be a good career choice. Working seasonal while earning my graduate degree and CPA is perfect. I feel I can be a real asset with my accounting education and customer service experience.
