How many games are played in a women's soccer conference if there are eight teams and all teams play each other twice?

• mathematics -

8 (teams) x 7 (possible opponents of each team) / 2 = 28

The division by two is necessary to avoid counting each game twice.

• mathematics -

I should have multiplied by 2 since each pair of teams plays twice. That makes the final number 56
