**Microstates oscillators??**

## Homework Statement

I have no idea where to begin on this problem. but here is what it asks

Consider an object containing 6 one-dimensional oscillators (this object could represent a model of 2 atoms in an Einstein solid). There are 4 quanta of vibrational energy in the object.

(a) How many microstates are there, all with the same energy?

(b) If you examined a collection of 44000 objects of this kind, each containing 4 quanta of energy, about how many of these objects would you expect to find in the microstate 000004?

there probaly is just an equation im not seeing in the book, but i cant find it so if you could give me some help that would be great. in the mean time i will continue looking in the book.

thanks all!!
