There are 5 girls and 5 boys in a chess club. The club holds a round-robin tournament in which every player plays against every other player exactly once.

What fraction of the games are boy-versus-boy? Enter your answer as a fraction in simplified form.

Boy-Boy  =  C(5,2)  =  10 games

Girl-Girl = C(5,2)  =  10 games

Boy-Girl  =  5 * 5  =  25 games

So..... Boy - Boy  =

[ 10 ]  /  [ 10 + 10 + 25 ]  =

10 / 45  =

2 / 9
