## Main Question or Discussion Point

I think i got this answer.

How many ways are there to distribute five distinguishable objects into three indistinguishable boxes?

Wouldn't the answer just be [tex]C(5,3)[/tex] because the boxes are indistinguishable? Or do i treat this question the same as if the boxes were distinguishable?
