I would think the person entering the room should be the first

to speak. It can also depend on the gender, and ag of persons

involved. Out of respect, the elderly should be spoken to first

regardless of whether they are in the room or entering. If you are

entering the home of someone, you should be the first to speak.

### If each of seven persons in a group shakes hands with each of the other six persons then a total of forty-two handshakes occurs?

The answer is 21 handshakes because the first person shakes
hands with the other 6 people. The second person shakes hands with
5 people because they already shook hands with the first person.
The third person shakes hands with 4 people because they already
shook hands with the first and second person. The fourth person
shakes hands with 3 people because they already shook hands with
the first, second, and third. The fifth person shakes hands with 2
people because they already shook hands with the first, second,
third, and fourth person. The sixth person shakes hands with the
seventh person because the rest have already shaken hands with
them. The seventh person doesn't have anyone else to shake hands
with.
Therefore the answer is 21 handshakes.
