This reminds me of an interesting (at least to me)
thought experiment on how to answer this question: how many games are there in a
64 team, single-elimination tournament (like the good ol' version of the NCAA
men's basketball tourney). There are at least three ways to answer this, and
while each arrives at the same answer, one is clearly
easiest:

-- draw out the bracket and count the
games

-- do some math, adding together each of the rounds:
32+16+8+4+2+1

-- think about the fact that every game eliminates a
team, and every team but one gets eliminated.

Not terribly related to the NBA or basketball, but
anyways...

You
can deduce this easily.

Each
team plays 82 games.

There
are 29 teams in the league.

Q1: How many games is that?

Q2: Because I just counted Seattle's game at Golden State, and
simultaneously counted Golden State hosting Seattle, I have double-counted every
game. So what adjustment should I make to the figure in
Q1?
