At the end of a banquet 5 people shake hands with each other How many handshakes will there be in total?

Each person shakes hands with every other person at the end of the banquet. When person 1 shakes hands with person 2 that constitutes one handshake even though 2 people are involved. So the answer is 10 total handshakes because the 1st person will have 4 total handshakes(because he can't shake hands with himself, he has 4 and not 5 total handshakes), and then the 2nd person will have 3 total handshakes (you wouldn't say 4 handshakes because you've already included the handshake between person 1 & person 2 when calculating the first person's number of shakes) and so on for the remaining 3 people. On paper the math would look like this: 4+3+2+1=10 Alternatively: Each person shakes hands with 4 others so the answer looks like 5x4 = 20; However, in Fred shaking with 4 others, he shakes with Charlie, similarly, in Charlie shaking with 4 others he shakes with Fred. Thus the Fred-Charlie handshake has been counted twice (once by Fred, once by Charlie), as have all the handshakes, thus the answer is: 5x4 / 2 = 10.
