Dear Rahul

Let us assume no. of men =n

no. of games played between themselve =nC2

no. games men played with women=2n

According to question




After solving

n=13 or -8

-8 is not possible

So no. of men =13

All the best

Note that P(a) =a, P(b) = b, and P(c) = c. Hence if we consider the polynomial Q(x) = P(x) – x, we see that Q(a) = Q(b) = Q(c) = 0. By Factor theorem we conclude (x-a)(x-b)(x-c) is a factor ...
