Question Description

Six teams are playing in a baseball tournament. Each baseball team plays each other baseball team only one time.  How many baseball games will be played during the tournament?

6 teams and each plays with all other, i.e. with 5.

So if we write 6*5 = 30 then each game will be counted twice (from the point of view of the first team and the second team of every game). Therefore 30/2 = 15 games will be played.
