Think of the '17' as 17 identical one to be put into the different variables.
what is the number of solution of x+y+z=17 in non- negative integers is:
the book answer is: (17+3-1 C 17)=19C17=171
but i dont unserstand why 17 and not 18???
because there are 18 digits from 0 to 10
so the answer not sepose to be (18+3-1 C 17) = 20C17
???
