  1. A line segment is formed by choosing any two points and joining them
    So it comes to C(10,2)
    = 10!/(8!,2)
    = 45

    We are learning about proofs. We drew lines between noncollinear points. Our table showed 2 points >> 1 line segment, 3 point >> 3 line segments, 4 points >> 6 line segments, 5 points >> 10 line seg, 6 points >> 15 line seg. etc.
