In a room there are N number of people if everyone shakes hands how many handshakes are made?

Depends what you mean, if you mean if everyone shakes hands just once then N-1 handshakes are made. If you mean if everyone shakes hands with everyone else then the answer is (N-1)+(N-2)+....+2+1 (we dont include N as they're not going to shake their own hand, obviously) written as Σn-1i=1 i, this is a arithmetic progression and so the total number of handshakes will be equal to (1+(n-1))(n-1)/2

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.

If there are 8 people at a party and every person shakes hands with everyone else at the party how many handshakes will there be?

There will be 28 handshakes. If you ask each person how many handshakes they had they will tell you 7 making 7 x 8 = 56 handshakes in all. But every hand involves two people, so every handshake has been counted twice, thus there are 56 / 2 = 28 handshakes in all.
