If there is 1 child, there can be 0 interactions.

If there are 2 children, there can be only 1 interaction.

If there are 3 children, there can be 4 interactions.

If there are 4 children, there can be 9 interactions.

How many interactions will there be for 8 children?

**Reiny**, Saturday, September 15, 2012 at 12:01pmAre they implying that interaction (I) between children (c) is a quadratic function ????

then

I(c)= (c-1)^2

so I(8) = 7^2 = 49

(look like a text-book editor's feeble attempt to "make mathematics real" )
