Solution

n (K -2)

Explanation:

Number of teams = n(n > 5)

Number of player in 1 team = K(K > 3)

Now, consider team 1

It has number of player = k (k > 3)

Now, number of player common with the other team (Tn ,T2) = 2

So, number of uncommon player in each team = K –2 and number of teams = n

∴ Total number of players = n (K–2)
