 Question 385423: A scientist wants to research the potential spread of germs by contact. She knows that the number of possible handshakes within a group of "X" people is given by the equation: N= 1/2(X^2(two meaning squared)-X) or N=1/2(X^2-X) looks better. N= 1/2 (x squared minus x) N= 78 (Number of possible handshakes) I know the answer is 13, but I can't figure out the steps to come to that. I under stand that the X squared is the number of people shaking hands with everyone else minus one person because they don't shake hands with themselves. I also understand that multiplying it times .5 or 1/2 is because they only shake one hand of each person, but other than starting to guess numbers that make X, I can't figure out the steps to get 13.
