24.Q. How many games are in a Major League Baseball season per team?
Q24- 162 games in the regular season per team (not including one-game 'playoffs' etc)
Which explains why I was able to get one right then lol
Wouldn't the question then be 'how many games are there in an MLB season in total' rather than per team, which is 162??
According to wiki, it's 2430 regular season games each season
My maths skills are HORRIBLE, but I don't think it would be 162 x 30, as that would be counting games twice (which leads to the 4860 figure)
You're right, because every game one team plays another team, that's why it's not 162 times the number of teams in both leagues, it would be times half that number.
So 162 times 15 which would be 2,430.
Well we all managed to confuse ourselves a bit with that one- only 23 questions left lol
