When I first read the beginning of Frisky's reply I thought it was a man being sexist but I know now that a woman sent the reply. GO FOR IT GIRL! The answer is 45

MY ANSWER IS 5 BECAUSE THE QUESTION CLEARLY STATES 10 PEOPLE SHAKE HANDS NOT THAT 10 PEOPLE SHAKE HANDS WITH EVERY OTHER PERSON. THIS BEING THE CASE IF 10 PEOPLE SHAKE HANDS THE YOU HAVE 5 HANDSHAKES. IT IS CALLED LOOKING OUTSIDE THE BOX OR AVOIDING THE OBVIOUS>

Huh? Oh my goodness. This is giving me a headache. I never was very good in math.

I would say 90

45

Each of the 10 people shakes hands with 9 others. If you multiply that, you are counting each handshake double. Therefore, the calculation is 10 x 9 / 2.
