16Text correction: Incorrect formula for calculating the number of connections in a mesh topology
The formula given in the discussion of mesh topologies is n(n-1)=total number of connections
The number of connectors is n(n-1), but each pair of connectors forms a connection, so the real formula for connections in a mesh topology is
