ParthKohli Group Title

Challenge: When @lgbasallote left OpenStudy, he left us with 44 theoretical dollars. Nine users fight over the money. Lord @shadowfiend decides that all the people will get a distinct amount of money based on a lottery and it must be a natural number. In how many ways can we distribute this money amongst these 9 users?
