Finish any unfinished work...

...especially including any logic problem posts that you have not completed.  Some students are away on a field trip, so get your work done.

If you are finished with everything, then ask me for some blocks and see if you can create these two shapes.

#33 How Many Handshakes?

1)  You walk into your first college math class and the professor tells you to shake hands and introduce yourself to every other student in the classroom.  Every student shakes hands with every other student exactly once.  How many handshakes were there (there are 10 students in class)?

2)  After everyone finishes shaking hands an eleventh student walks in to class.  How many handshakes will there be (total) after he is done shaking hands?

3)  What would be the total if there were 20 students in the class?

The following illustration is your hint as to how to figure out these three answers.  Post your three answers on your blog.  Title the post "#33 How Many Handshakes."

You may collaborate with your fellow classmates, but you must be able to explain your answers.
