In there was this example

```
from itertools import combinations
teams = ["Packers", "49ers", "Ravens", "Patriots"]
for game in combinations(teams, 2):
print game
>>> ('Packers', '49ers')
>>> ('Packers', 'Ravens')
>>> ('Packers', 'Patriots')
>>> ('49ers', 'Ravens')
>>> ('49ers', 'Patriots')
>>> ('Ravens', 'Patriots')
```

So I thought I would play with it. very simply just used numbers to create a bigger list and a bigger tuple.

```
>>> from itertools import combinations
>>> numbers = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10]
>>> for game in combinations(numbers, 6):
print game
```

When I received more combinations than I expected I wondered how many combinations had I received.

```
>>> len(game)
6
```

So length only returns the length of one game. How do I find out how many tuples were created by combinations.
