    the way to do this is to say distribute 3 sweets initially to those 3 kids .. so now we are left with 27 sweets .. so basically you have to find number of ways to distribute 27 sweets among 5 kids ... this would be 27c5

    sorry in haste I miscalculated .. .look u need to distribute 27 sweets among 5 kids. Imagine you have to arrange 27 women and 5 men. How many ways can you do it ?? 32!/(5!*27!) ... now say I make a condition that the last person would be a man then how many ways --> 31!/(27!*4!) .. Now say I say that any women which comes to the left of a man is given to him then I am through right??
