Say you have 5 regular die, how many permutations are possible if permutations such as 1,1,1,1,2 and 1,2,1,1,1 are not unique but considered the same (ordering doesn't matter)? I haven't done any combinatorics work in almost 6 years, so I am completely rusty on counting problems. No this, isn't homework, I graduated 2 years ago, I am just trying to help out a college friend of mine who is a computer programmer.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
