HLS bandwidth needs per viewer - Multiple live streams

I am having a hard time finding the requirements on a per viewer basis on LIVE streaming. I know that I need to build an HLS server. I am good with that. I just do not know how much bandwidth per viewer I am going to need. Say I have 10,000 people that are going to watch my live feed of an event. HOW MUCH bandwidth am I going to need? What formula is there? Is there even a formula?

Next question on this is, I would like to make 4 live streaming categories within the channel. Can this be done? Or do I have to make 4 different channels and live stream to each one the events individually?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I have searched for an hour using many different search strings and cannot get the correct answers.
