**Reiny**, Thursday, February 2, 2012 at 10:32pmEach of the 9 players would play against 8 others, that would give us 9x8 or 72

BUT, wouldn't that include such games as

A vs B and B vs A, which is the same game.

So we have to divide by 2 to get all those duplications taken out

number of games = 72/2 = 36

In mathematical symbols that would be

C(9,2) = 9!/(2!7!) = 36
