    I recall hearing that it was only the Eirav Rav who participated in the Chet Haegel, which if you compare the numbers to the people who were killed for that sin, gives around 3k. – Salmononius2 Jun 6 at 23:08
  • @Salmononius2 i heard in a shiur (Amnon Yitzchak) that it was 2x the number of jews which came out of egypt. though he did not give a source – michael Jun 7 at 5:27
