1. Yes, but some people buy multiple.

I'd say it's a lot more than that. Many people can solve a 7x7 but not afford one
Right there I know 8 people who can solve 7x7x7 but dont have one.

3. I'd say about 2-3x the number of 7x7's sold.
Sound fair?

4. Probably. But ultimately, there's no proper way of finding out anyway...heh.

5. yea to bad. does anybody know if my number was right on 13.3% of people can solve it cause that doesnt sound right. Theres only 1 kid i met that could do it but he did it in like 20 minutes and needed the list of algorithms and never memorized them so that doesnt really count.

6. 13.3% is wrong, unless there's a secret branch of cubing gnome-people that have been hiding out.

Thats exactly what I was thinking...

Many people can afford one (and have done so) but not solve it.

But all of this is just nitpicking (fun though).
"Everyone" could learn how to solve a 3x3x3
"Maybe 1%" could solve it right now with "a little help from a piece of paper"
Percentages for "without help", "sub 20" or "7x7x7" would be much lower.

Keep in mind that 1% of all people is about 60 million people and that "only" 300 million cubes have been sold. Even if everyone that bought one could solve it that would only be 5%

100 - 87.7 = 13.3 ???
i think not
