|A) 3||B) 6|
|C) 2||D) 4|
Answer: A) 3
You need two points to draw a line. The order is not important. Line AB is the same as line BA. The problem is to select 2 points out of 3 to draw different lines. If we proceed as we did with permutations, we get the following pairs of points to draw lines.
AB , AC
BA , BC
CA , CB
There is a problem: line AB is the same as line BA, same for lines AC and CA and BC and CB.
The lines are: AB, BC and AC ; 3 lines only.
So in fact we can draw 3 lines and not 6 and that's because in this problem the order of the points A, B and C is not important.
