Show Answer
Correct Answer: 1098
Among a group of n persons, number of matches played = n(n – 1)/2
Among the Junior participants, let the number of girls be n.
The number of matches played among girls
= n(n – 1)/2 = 153
=> n(n – 1) = 306 = 18 × 17 => n = 18
Number of boys = 43 – 18 = 25
The number of matches played between a boy and a girl = 25×18 = 450
Among the Senior level participants, let the number of boys be n.
The number of matches played between two boys
= n(n – 1)/2 = 276
=> n(n – 1) = 552 = 24 × 23 => n = 24
The number of girls = 51 – 24 = 27
The number of matches played between a boy and a girl = 27 × 24 = 648
Required answer = 450 + 648 = 1098
