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?

    Then we actually have 8 people to give money to in natural numbers :-D 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 = 36 So there are some ways.
