At a women's doubles tennis tournament, there were three teams of two women. After the tournament, each woman shook hands once with each of the other players except her partner. What is the number of handshakes that occurred?

So there are 2 women on each team so that is 6 well all we do is 

 

6x4 whay multiply 6 by 4 because the women on a team dont hand shake with there partner so there are only 4 other people so 

 

6x4=24

 

so 24 handshakes 

 

Answer is = 24 Handshakes

I think it would be 6*4 because they wouldn't be shaking hands with there partner.

Let the teams be   (A, B)  (C, D)  (E, F)

 

So....the number of handshakes are

 

(A,C) (A,D) (A,E) (A, F)

(B, C) (B,D) (B,E) (B, F)

(C, E) ( C, F)

(D, E) (D, F)   =        12
