Best Answer

Perhaps 9,900

As in you shake with 99 other people, then the next person does the same.

So each of the 100 people do 99 shakes.

99 x 100 = 9,900

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.


How many handshakes if 25 people shake hands with every other person in room?

Each person will shake hands with every other person, except himself. If there are 25 people, each person will shake hands with 25-1 people, or 24. The number of times each person will shake hands with another, will be 25x24. The number of handshakes will be half of that, as each handshake is between two persons. The formula, in other words, is x(x-1)/2, where x is the number of people. With 25 people, it will be 25x24/2 = 300 handshakes.

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.
