I have the same answer. Just another approach

First team has to play 10 games (6 teams, so 5 games. As they play twice, there are 10 games)
Second team play the same 10 games, but the ones with team one are already counted, so 8 games
Third the same as second team 6 games
Fourth 4 games
Fifth 2 games
Sixth 0

total 10+8+6+4= 30

6C2*2 = 30.

Total number of pairs possible = 6C2.
Number matches between any two paris = 2
So, total matches = 6C2 * 2.

Nice one from the golden grave!

tzolkin's approach is simpler. I learnt one more application of combinations today. Thanks tzolkin.

# of ways = 6C2 * 2 = 30 ways

Use combination because we are interested in grouping and not ordering
