 Question 630275: How many different teams of 2 people each can Joshua select from a group of 5 people? please include explanations!Answer by rapaljer(4667)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Since you are choosing members of a team (the key word here is "CHOOSE"!), it is a COMBINATION problem, a combination of 5 people, taken 2 at a time. C(5,2) = = 10. Most calculators of today will calculate combinations and permuations for you. Dr. Robert J. Rapalje, Retired Seminole State College of Florida
