    assuming each game can only have one winner ... and he outcome of interest is the winners of the five games. a.b -> a c.d -> c e.f -> e g.h -> g i .j -> i which leads one to believe that the set of outcomes has a cardinality of 5 is there something else to the setup that we might be overlooking?

    it might be asking, of the 10 teams, how many ways are there to choose 5 winners? (10P5)/5! 10.9.8.7.6 ----------- 5.4.3.2 2.9.7.2 ; .... is greater than 32 so its not that

    Underdog is the team who is less likely to win

    i dont know the rules of how winners are paired up with losers ... so i cant even begin to make an educated run at this

    you have 5 teams in the running, 4 teams get paired up with a 1 team in the wings .... to do what? there is either assumed knowledge that is not present, or missing information that i cant deduce.

    Each game has 2 possible outcomes. The sample space is 2^5 = 32
