<div class="vars">
<var id="NUM">randRange( 5, 10 )</var>
<var id="ANSWER">( NUM * ( NUM - 1 ) ) / 2</var>
</div>
<p>There are <var>NUM</var> people in a room.</p>
<p class="question">If everyone shakes everyone else's hand exactly once, how many handshakes occur?</p>
<p class="solution" data-forms="integer"><var>ANSWER</var></p>
<div class="hints">
<p>Given <var>NUM</var> people, each person shakes the hands of <var>NUM - 1</var> other people.</p>
<div>
<p>The following is almost the answer.</p>
<p><code><var>NUM</var> \times <var>NUM - 1</var> = <var>NUM * ( NUM - 1 )</var></code></p>
</div>
<p>We have double counted the handshakes though, since <var>person( 1 )</var> shaking <var>person( 2 )</var>'s hand is the same handshake as <var>person( 2 )</var> shaking <var>person( 1 )</var>'s hand.</p>
<div>
<p>Therefore, the following is the correct answer.</p>
<p><code>\dfrac{<var>NUM</var> \times <var>NUM - 1</var>}{2} = <var>ANSWER</var></code></p>
