a) Each team plays every other team in the division
Number of games = 7C2 = 21
b) Each team plays two teams from the other division
Total number of games = 14 (When one team plays another, both of them have one out of the two needed games completed. Seven teams play against seven teams (7) and then those seven teams play against seven different teams (7 more) )
c) Final game = 1 game
Total = 21 + 14 + 1 = 36
