Hall of Fame
Categories : induction : handshake.p

At a party people shake hands with all the people they do not know.  A
married couple organizes the party; they only invite other married
couples.  It is assumed everybody knows him/herself and his/her

When all couples have arrived and all the handshaking has been done,
the host mingles among the guests and asks everybody (including his
wife): "How many hands did you shake?". To his surprise, all responses
are different.

With the above information, you should be able to determine how many
hands the host and hostess each shook.
