7 people shake hands with each other how many hand shakes are exchanged?

The first guy shakes hands with 6 other people. The next guy has already shaken the first one's hand, so she has only 5 other people to handshake & so on down to the last two people with a single handshake. All together there are 6 + 5 + 4 + 3 + 2 + 1 = 21 handshakes


If each of seven persons in a group shakes hands with each of the other six persons then a total of forty-two handshakes occurs?

The answer is 21 handshakes because the first person shakes hands with the other 6 people. The second person shakes hands with 5 people because they already shook hands with the first person. The third person shakes hands with 4 people because they already shook hands with the first and second person. The fourth person shakes hands with 3 people because they already shook hands with the first, second, and third. The fifth person shakes hands with 2 people because they already shook hands with the first, second, third, and fourth person. The sixth person shakes hands with the seventh person because the rest have already shaken hands with them. The seventh person doesn't have anyone else to shake hands with. Therefore the answer is 21 handshakes.


If each OF seven persons in a group shakes hands with each of the other six persons then a total of forty two handshakes occurs?

The correct answer is 21. The first person shakes hands with the other 6 people. The second person shakes hands with 5 people because they already shook hands with the first person. The third person shakes hands with 4 people because they already shook hands with the first and second person. The fourth person shakes hands with 3 people because they already shook hands with the first, second, and third. The fifth person shakes hands with 2 people because they already shook hands with the first, second, third, and fourth person. The sixth person shakes hands with the seventh person because the rest have already shaken hands with them. The seventh person doesn't have anyone else to shake hands with. So the total would be 21...


There are five people in a room Each person shakes the hand of every other person exactly once How many handshakes are exchanged?

Everyone shakes hands with 4 other people. Since there are 5 people in the room this would suggest there are 5*4 = 20 handshakes. However, you would then be double counting handshakes: A shaking hands with B and B shaking hands with A is, in reality, only one handshake. Thus there are 5*4/2 = 10 handshakes in all.

How many people are there if everyone shakes hands and there are 66 handshakes?

Assuming that each person shakes hands with every other person, there are 12 people. Let n be the number of people. Then each person shakes hands with (n-1) people and if you ask every person how many hand shakes they made and total them you will get a total of n(n-1) handshakes. However, each handshake involves two people and has been counted twice - once by each person that shook hands - thus number of hand shakes is half of this, giving: n(n-1)/2 = 66 ⇒ n(n-1) = 132 ⇒ n2 - n - 132 = 0 ⇒ (n - 12)(n + 11) = 0 ⇒ n = 12 or -11 You can't have -11 people, therefore there are 12 people.
