I am struggling with this probability/combinatorics problem.
the problem states: "11 people are seated around a round table. At some point, everyone stands up and sits again at a randomly chosen seat. Show that the expected value of the number of pairs which swapped places (A sat at B's place and B sat at A's place) is 1/2."
I struggle with calculating the number of orderings in which pairs switch places. I know we have 10! possible permutations for 11 people sitting in a circle, and there are $11\choose2$ possible pairs that could switch places. But I'm not sure how to count for example the number of permutation in which only one couple switches places.
