    There's nothing too hard about it except finding the obscure statistic, which you can do on your own with the help of google. If you are still confused then, we can help you out.

    you know what i've tried all those :P but the last thing i tried to do is think of it logically, how many people can possible be in a building. hundreds, thousands, millions, or billions! and out of those i chose thousands which was wrong, then Millions !! which is CORRECT!
    so i guess approximating how many guys can stand up in the pentagon ... will be in the MILLIONS ! ;) :P

    Thank you very much
