Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Using stars and bars, the answer is given by \[ \huge \sum \limits_{n=0}^{65} \binom{n+3}{3} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0One can also think logically and get the solution .. say you have x+y+z+u <= k (some integer) and you have to find the number of solutions then it is like finding the number of ways where k sweets can be distributed to 4 kids and total sweets distributed may not be equal to k. Now lets imagine a situation where we have 4 women and k men. How many ways of arranging them? (4+k)!/(4!*k!) Now say I say that all men who come to the left of any woman are given to that woman (not literally) .. then we have solved our distribution problem and hence our equation.. so I believe the answer should be 69!/(4!*65!)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okk .. I didn't look at that.. I only looked at your expression which was in summation form.. I thought logically we don't need that summation..
