Boot Check

In the little European country of Pedastan, there are the two towns of Leftuansa and Rightlandia, a few miles apart on either side of the Kickistan mountain range. The preferred footwear in this region is the combat boot.

 

There are 20,000 people who live in Leftuansa. And one percent of them have one foot only, so they wear one boot. Half of the remaining people in the town wear no boots at all. They go barefoot.

 

The rest of the people wear two boots. Now you can figure out how many boots there are in Leftuansa.

 

In Rightlandia, 20 percent of the people have one foot. Of the remaining people, half of them wear no boots and half of them wear two boots — and there are 20 thousand boots worn in Rightlandia.

 

Here’s the question. What’s the population of Rightlandia?
