Problem:
The aim is to find the number of quadrilaterals in a grid containing m horizontal lines and n vertical lines. In this case, the quadrilaterals will only be squares or rectangles which will be given by (nC2*mC2).

Explanation:
To make a rectangle or a square from given m horizontal lines and n vertical lines we need to select 2 lines out of m horizontal lines and 2 lines out of n vertical lines.

Number of ways in which we can select 2 horizontal lines out of n = nC2
=(n)!/((n­-2)!$2) =(n$(n­-1))/2.

Number of ways in which we can select 2 vertical lines out of m = mC2
= (m)!/((m­-2)!$2) = (m$(m­-1))/2.

To make a rectangle or a square we need to select 2 vertical and 2 horizontal lines simultaneously, so, the answer will be (nC2*mC2).

Solution:

   
#include
using namespace std;
int main()
{
    unsigned long long t,n,m;
    cin>>t;
    while(t­­)
    {
        cin>>n>>m;
        cout<<(n*(n­1)/2)*(m*(m­1)/2)<&ltendl;
    }
    return 0;
}

There are lot of errors in code! Please correct it.
