A playground is being designed where children can interact with their friends in certain combinations.

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?

  • math - ,

    Are 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" )
