Algebra Grade 7

posted by on .

there are 10 students in Mr. Alvarez's art class. Throughout the year, each student must pair up with every other student to complete a project. How many projects will be completed?
45?

  • Algebra Grade 7 - ,

    combinations of ten taken two at a time:

    10!/[(2!)(8!)] = 10*9/2 = 5*9 = 45

    Grade 7 ????

    I 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
