Find the number of ways that Magnus can give out 10 identical stickers to 8 of his friends. (Not everyone has to get a sticker.)

I don't exactly remember how to do these type of problems...

but I believe this is a problem involving combinations....

10 stickers to 8 friends...10*8 = 80 ....so 80 different ways??...

I hope this helps....

Using sticks and stones strategy, you will have 7 sticks and 10 stones, so seventeen different objects. If we have 17 slots, we can first place the 7 sticks in 17c7= \(\boxed{19448}\) ways.
