Homework Help: Math

Posted by Jeff on Saturday, December 1, 2007 at 1:59pm.

I'm tutoring someone 1st year arts math and they have been given this difficult question that I cannot mind boggel. It goes as follows: There are 6 couples at a party. Each can shake another persons hand once, but they can never shake their spouses hand. At the end of the night when a husband asks his wife and all the other people how many hands they shook he gets eleven different answers. Then the question asks how many hands did the husband's wife shake? I'm very confused by it. If anyone could help that would be great.
