The Little Twelve Basketball Conference has two divisions, with six teams in each division. Each team plays each of the other teams in its own division twice and every team in the other division once. How many conference games are scheduled?
6C2 = 15 pairings. This happens twice though so it's 15 * 2 = 30 matches in one division
Then you need to do the other division, which means you have 30 * 2 = 60 games.
Then there are 6 * 6 games between the two divisions which means your total is 60 + 6 * 6 = 60 + 36 = 96 conference games
