In how many ways can 15 gifts be distributed equally:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a) amongst Claire, Alana, and Kalena

b) into three parcels of five gifts each

For (a) I went [tex]_{15} P_{3}/3 = 910[/tex]

I am 100% certain this is wrong. I also have no idea how to do (b). I would greatly appreciate any help on this question.
