5 pens are to be distributed among 4 children randomly. The probabilty that each child get altleast one pen is ??
@FoolForMath there are two formulas, which are:
\[(k1)C _{n1} \]
where k>Total no of nondistinguishable objects
n>total no of distinguishable receivers
and
\[(n+k1)C _{k} \]
Now can you tell me which formula to use in this case and why?
