Since you are choosing 2 out of 15, you use the formula \(\frac{n!}{r!(n-r)!}\), which is the combination formula

 

N represents number of items you are choosing out of, and r represents the number of items you are choosing.

 

Substituting in you will get 105 ways.

 

 

Whenever a problem is asking you to choose a certain number of items out of a total number of items, then use the formula above.
