I am having a lot of trouble on this one.

First, I calculated the total number of outcomes and that would be 6x6x6x6x6x6x6

I calculated the number of pairs i could make 7C2 =21

besides the pair there will be 5 people who can throw to any of the 6

so the outcome is 21x6x6x6x6x6

From here, I am sure I have to correct the overcounts and I am still trying...

Can I get some hints please?

the answer is 7847/15552

I tried working backwards from the answer and i still couldn't get it.

Thanks.
