Since it takes two to shake hands, no odd number of people can handshake, since one must be left out. Therefore 99 people cannot shake hands. Unless "handshake" means something unusual here, which seems unlikely, as it is the only handshaking activity where you can count the handshakes. * * * * * What utter nonsense! 3 people: A, B and C can shake hands. AB shake hands, AC shake hands and BC shake hands. And the last time I looked 3 was still classified as an odd number. The correct answer is 99*98/2 = 4851

20 ; 80 (assuming they shake both hands)

595 If you have 35 people and everyone shakes hands with everone else, you have 35x34/2 total handshakes. To see this think of three people, and fix one of them, say it's you! You shake hands with everyone meaning you shake hands with 2 people And each of them shakes hands with each other, that is two people other than you so the total 2+1= 3 which is 3x2/2 Try it with 4, you shake hand with 3 people, and they all shake hands with each other so we have your 3 plus 3 more. To see the three more, just look at what we just did above. 4x3/2=6, We divide by 2 to avoid double counting. Because you shake hands with me and I shake hands with you, but we only shake hands once, so divide the total by 2. In general for n people at a party, we have n(n-1)/2handshakes.
