Probability & Odds?

  1. Jul 31, 2011 #1
    hi all,

    any help would be appreciate.

    In a game of lawn balls:
    7 rinks
    2 teams per rink.
    a total of 14 teams

    after the first round of games the teams switch randomly
    and play another round of games.

    every team has played two games each.

    Normally at the end of the two games there are 2, maybe 3 teams who have won both games.

    What are the odds & the probability that 6 teams have won two games?

    thanks,
    P

    Are we assuming that each game is a fair Bernoulli trial? That is, either team wins with probability .5? Also, have you learned random variables yet? This will effect the way the answer should be explained.
