Explanation

When calculating the number of games, order does not matter. There are two students in each game, so two slots: \(\frac{6}{2}\times\frac{5}{1}\), because order does not matter you will divide by the factoral for 15 combinations. Each student plays 4 games against each of the other students, so 4(15) = 60 games are played.
