Given 6 points, no 4 of which are collinear, what is the maximum number of lines that can be represented? What is the minimum number of lines that can be represented? (Keep a graphical representation of this, as I might ask to see your diagram of the situation)
can anyone solve this or at least tell me how to start this equation.
Tha maximum is when no 3 are collinear. For example, all 6 are lying on a circle. So then the number of lines that can be drawn is the number of ways selecting two points from 6 points that is

Minimum lines diagram can be:
Minimum is 9 lines.
Opps, I started counting from 2.
