462 ways

Explanation

In the question, it does not seem to matter how many boys or girls are on a team. So really you are asking how many ways are there to divide 12 people into two teams of 6.

The answer is (12C6)/2 where 12C6 means 12 choose 6

First 12 chose 6 is 12!/(12-6)!(6)! which is 12x11x10x9x8x7x6x5x4x3x2x1/(6x5x4x3x2x1)(6x5x4x3x2x1)=

(12x11x10x9x8x7)/(6x5x4x3x2x1)=924

(As a side note, the Google browser will calculate these numbers if you just type in 12 choose 6, for example)

Now once one team of 6 is chosen, the other team is automatically the remaining 6 so we have really double counted. That is why we divide by 2 and the answer

is 462 ways.

I think that you can make 50, if the order is irrelavent.

The first book in the Bible was Genesis. That chapter tells us how the earth was formed. In the beginning......... The person who wrote Genesis was Moses.

The question is rather vague, however, if the issue is, does one have to give their SSN when applying for a credit, the answer is no. There are certain agencies which can legally enforce the request for a person's SSN or ITIN or information, the IRS for example. On the other side, the lender or card issuer does not have to extend credit to a person who chooses not to submit their SSN.
