Help with mathematical combinations please. Points A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, and I are arranged in two rows such that we have A - B - C - D - E and F - G - H - I How many triangles can be formed having vertices chosen from these points? How many of these triangles have the point A as one of their vertices?

Yes they are to act as the vertices of triangles.

so either two points are from the top line (and one from the bottom line) or one point is from the top line (and two from the bottem line)

Hmm i see, let me try that, i wasnt sure how to interpret it.

because if all three points were on the same line , you couldn't make a triangle

Yes that appears to work, 5C1 x 4C2 and 5C2 x 4C1 which adds to 70

Though can I ask how you determine how to do these questions? I havent really got a problem solving type of mind, so i find it difficult to think laterally.

No i understand the general formula of the combination theory. I just often have difficulty understanding how I am meant to approach the question, what guidelines I need to follow.

Once you had explained those guidelines i knew exactly what to do, i just dont know how to determine the parameters to follow.

Are there any other tricks you can use to figure out whats going on? or is it just trying to pull apart the question, and making assumptions to rules.

im not sure how to answer that,
