Question: I have 8 pieces of strawberry candy (all identical) and 7 pieces of rhubarb candy (all identical). Find the number of ways I can distribute this candy to 4 children.
I know the number of ways to give 8 pieces of strawberry candy to 4 kids is 165, and 7 pieces of rhubarb is 120, but I'm not sure how to combine them? I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, but my brain is fried and I'm stuck.
Thank you in advance! I'll try to respond and tell you if your answer is correct.
