An ice cream stand has nine different flavours. A group of children come to the stand and each buys a double scoop cone with two flavours of ice cream. If none of the children choose the same combination of flavours, and every different combination of flavors is chosen, how many children are there?

FLAVOURS

1 Vanilla

2 Maple

3 Chocolate

4 Tiger

5 Raspberry

6 Strawberry

7 Coffee

8 Moon Mist

9 Cherry Vanilla
