**Damon**, Thursday, October 18, 2012 at 5:06amI am trying to think how I would have done this in grade 7. I assume you have not had permutations, combinations and factorials.

make a table of combinations

first person shakes hands with 9 --> 9 projects

second with 8 --> 8 more

third with 7 --> 7 more

etc

9+8+7+6+5+4+3+2+1 = 45
