    good to know, why don't you change feeling "good" to "euphoric" by suggesting why the answer is 9C3 -8

    mukushla is right , we are misusing the straight lines because they are not triangles

    different triangles can be formed by joining 3 of the dotes unless 3 dots are in the same line, so C(3,9)-8
