80,000 autos
80,00,000 people
100 localities
80,000 people per locality
800 autos per locality
Avg life expectancy in BLR - 75
People 15 yrs or older would usually take Auto or 4/5th of population = 64000 people per locality
Out of these assuming 20% use buses, 20% use bikes, 5% use cars, this leaves 55% or 35200 people who will take autos.

If each person on an avg takes one auto per day among 35.2k people you have on avg. 1467 people taking an auto in a locality any hour.

Every hour has 60 min. So on an avg. you have 1467/60 or apprx 25 people taking an auto every min.

Assuming an auto ride lasts 30 min. on an avg. On Day 0, after 0:30 hrs after midnight in the morning 25 * 30 = 733 people would be in an auto on the streets. Hence after that every min. you can find 800 - 733 = 67 autos idle in a locality.

huge percentage of auto drivers, refuse to travel or commute so that has to be accounted...
Instead of considering age, one has to account for the earning capability vis a vis willingness to travel (not having car / bike) etc.

This is just an Indianized version of a very standard Microsoft question. The US equivalents were:
* Estimate the number of fuel stations around the US.
* How many piano tuners are there in the world?
