Here total of 10 cars with 2 cars race at a time

so the total possibility will be 10C2 = 40

Now each car must race twice, then the total race = 45 * 2 =90 races.


Moreoevr another approach is -

Since there are 10 cars and each of them race against 9 cars(since the tenth car cannot race against itself) for twice = 10 * 9 * 2 =180.

But there are two cars common so total races will be = \(\frac{180}{2}\) =90 races
