(n)= 210 , find the value of n, where n ≥ 2.

. 2

sorry the 2 is supposed to be under n inside the bracket , as in n choose 2. or^{n}C_{2. i have no idea how to do this i got it for homework despite the fact that we never did it in class. }

ya then i get n=-20 or n=21, so that must mean that n=21 if it in the question it states that n ≥ 2. thanks but i just don't get where you got n(n-1)/2 ?

Pls study the formula of combinations. the formula that gives you how many combinations you will get if you have n -distict objects and you combine them by 2 is the one that Plato gave you...
