OK say there are x players from the start
thus x-2 non ill players
THe total matches they played with one another is
(x-2)(x-3)/2 …..........(because each player will play will every other player by (x-2)(x-3), but this will be double of the total answer so we half it)
in addition to this there are 6 more games played by ill players

this results in a quadratic as

whic results in
x=15
