Two or more spots are placed anywhere on a circle's circumference. Every pair is joined by a straight line. Given n spots, what is the maximum number of regions into which the circle can be divided?
I just understood that my posting was totally wrong

This is n + number of regions in a regular n-gon with all diagonals drawn.
Which is n + Sloane's A007678
I think the above might be correct.
