so I guess my answer is correct for n=8?

comment How many squares can be formed from n equidistant points in a circle?
@talegari: yes for n=6 there are no squares possible my bad my mistake, but if n=8 then we have 2 squares, so does this rule hold in general like if n is a multiple of 4 then n/4 is the number of squares that can be formed?

comment How do 3 points define a plane?
Can you like give a non mathematical example to show why 4 points are a problem and 3 are not and for that matter is it a generalization that higher number of points pose problems to define a plane?

comment How do 3 points define a plane?
The answer to the combinatorics question is like C(25,3) which I am not able to see why, can't 4 points define a plane? if yes then the answer should be C(25,3) + C(25,4) isn't it?

comment How to calculate the number of combinations of getting a pair in a deck of 52 cards?
@DavidMitra : I also wanted to ask how would we solve questions like this "How many ways are there to select 3 aces and a pair" and other flavors thereof?

No I just want to select a pair that is it, okk so the number of permutations is 156, thanks for correcting my solution @David :) I learnt that now.

check out the solution for problem (4) on the link, also what is wrong with my solution?
