1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data You have 5 identical boxes that stand one after another. How many different ways can you put your 3 identical eggs into these boxes? For whatever reason, my physics professor decided to give us this as a problem to think about in how to solve. However, from my understanding, this is something you would normally see in Stats. I'm not sure how you go about incorporating physics to solve this but I believe the statistical property n! could be used to solve this problem? However, upon going to try to answer it on my class website, I seem to be misunderstanding how to solve it. I know you have 120 total combinations with the boxes in shifting them in different rows. But I'm not sure on how to figure out how to properly calculate how you would rearrange the eggs? Any input would be appreciated.
