ans should be 6

each of 6 teams play 2 games with each of the other teams
so total of 30 games played........[ 2*(5+4+3+2+1)] = 30

there should be 30 wins, bcoz there were no ties.

total number of wins given in table adds up to 24, so X won remaining 6 games.

Hi All,

If you're comfortable using the Combination Formula, then calculating that 30 games were played is a fairly straight-forward task. If you're not comfortable with that formula yet, here's another way to figure out that 30 games were played.....

The teams are A, B, C, D, E and X

Team A plays each of the other 5 teams TWICE, so that's 2(5) = 10 games

Since B ALREADY played Team A twice, we won't count those games again; Team B plays each of the remaining 4 teams twice, so that's 2(4) = 8 games

Since C ALREADY PLAYED Team A and Team B, we won't count those games again, Team C plays each of the remaining 3 teams twice, so that's 2(3) = 6 games.

This pattern continues, giving us...

10+8+6+4+2+0 = 30 total games.

From there, the rest of the work is based on addition.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,

According to the incomplete table above, if each of the 6 teams in the league played each of the other teams exactly twice and there were no ties, how many games did team X win? (Only 2 teams play in a game.)

(A) 4
(B) 5
(C) 6
(D) 8
(E) 10


Team A played 5*2= 10 matches with other teams
Team B played 4*2= 8 matches with other teams
Team C played 3*2= 6 matches with other teams
Team D played 2*2= 4 matches with other teams
Team E played 2 matches

Total Matches played= 30

Total Matches won by teams other than team X= 24

Total matches won by team X = 30-24= 6

C is the answer

6P2 = 30 games
