Think in terms of 'league table' listing the number of wins, draws, and losses for each team. Be aware that each one of 5 teams has played 4 games since each team has four opposing teams.

One such possible 'league table' could look like:

W D L

4 0 0 --> 4 wins

1 2 1

1 2 1

1 2 1

0 0 4 --> 4 losses

Take it from there. - April 4th 2012, 03:29 AMprasumRe: Probability
