Tournament

Six teams entered the basketball tournament. How many matches will be played if each team has to play one match with each other?

Correct result:

n =  15

Solution:

n1=6 (61)/2=15 C2(6)=(62)=6!2!(62)!=6521=15  n=(62)=15n_{1}=6 \cdot \ (6-1)/2=15 \ \\ C_{{ 2}}(6)=\dbinom{ 6}{ 2}=\dfrac{ 6! }{ 2!(6-2)!}=\dfrac{ 6 \cdot 5 } { 2 \cdot 1 }=15 \ \\ \ \\ n={ { 6 } \choose 2 }=15
