Kudos for a correct solution.
Let total no. of Fishermen =100
Therefore, Fishermen who are also hunters=30
And, Hunters who are fisherman=30*5=150( Since, only 20% of all hunters are fishermen)
Therefore, if there are 1500 hunters, there will be 300 hunters who are fishermen and 700 Fishermen who are not hunters
Answer =700+300=1000
