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 $5$ children.

 

There is a group of $5$ children, where two of the children are twins. How many ways can I distribute $6$ identical pieces of candy to the children, if the twins must get an equal amount of candy?

1. Using stars and bars, the number of ways is $\binom{13}{3} \binom{12}{3} = 62920$.

 

2. There are 62 ways of distributing the candy.
