Question

The number of non-negative integral solutions of $$x_{1}+x_{2}+x_{3}+x_{4}=10$$ where not all the $$x_{i}$$ are different is

A
286
B
282
C
166
D
168

Solution

The correct option is C $$166$$Number of solutions without any conditions = $$^{ 10+4-1 }{ C }_{4-1}=286$$Now, all terms are different can be attained in the following ways:(a) $$0, 1, 4, 5: 4! = 24$$ ways(a) $$0, 1, 3, 6: 4! = 24$$ ways(a) $$0, 1, 2, 7: 4! = 24$$ ways(a) $$0, 2, 3, 5: 4! = 24$$ ways(a) $$1, 2, 3, 4: 4! = 24$$ waysHence, total $$=24\times 5=120$$ ways.Hence, answer $$=286-120=166$$Hence, (C) is correct.Maths
