let Men & women be m1w1 , m2w2.... m4w4
total possible teams with 1 man: m1w2, m1w3,m1w4 ; 3
with 4 men ; 12 teams possible
and each team has chance to play with suppose our team is m1w2
so it can then play with
m2w1,m2w3,m2w4 ; m3w1,m3w4 ; m4w1,m4w3 ; 7 teams possible
12 *7 ; 84 matches possible
maximum matches a team can play is 84/2 ; 42
