In this question, order means order in time
A teacher has 5 chocolates, 4 lollies and 3 licorice sticks to distribute to a class of 14
pupils. No pupil may get more than one item, and all the items must be given out. The
chocolates are all alike, as are the lollies and the licorice sticks.
(a) In how many ways can the items be distributed amongst the class (without
regard to the order in which this is done)?
(b) In how many ways can the items be distributed amongst the class, taking into
account the order in which this is done?
(c) If the items are distributed at random, what is the probability that John, Joe
and Jim will get the same item whilst Jenny gets a chocolate?
Please please can anyone help?
