    ok i tried that that its hard why don't u try and tellme the answer ?

  • geometry -

    You have 6 points on a circle.
    It is not possible to have 3 of them forming a straight line (not a triangle) so the question becomes how many choices are there of 3 elements form 6
    or C(6,3) = 6!/(3!3!) = 20
