If 20 points are marked on a circle, how many chords can be drawn? - Mathematics and Statistics
If 20 points are marked on a circle, how many chords can be drawn?
To draw a chord we need to join two points on the circle.
There are 20 points on the circle.
∴ We can draw 20C2 chords of the circle.
= `(20!)/((20 - 2)!2!)`
= `(20 xx 19xx18!)/(2xx1xx18!)`
190 chords can be drawn.
