How many ways can you distribute 4 different balls among 5 different boxes?

For each ball, you have 5 different options. 

First ball has 5 options, second ball has 5 options, third ball has 5 options, and fourth ball also has 5 options, 5*5*5*5 = 625.

Hey there, Guest!

 

There are five choices for each ball: \(5^4\) = 625

Among these 625 distributions, there are 5 cases where the four balls reside in the same box because there are five boxes. So from 625, subtract 5 to count the required.

 

625 – 5 = 620.

 

Hope this helped! :)
