I have 6 pieces of candy that I want to distribute to 5 children. If all the candy is identical, and two of the children are twins who insist on receiving an equal amount of candy, then how many ways can I distribute the candy?

The twins must get only one piece each else there will not be enough for every child

that leaves 4 pieces for 3 children

one child will receive 2 pieces .....there are 3 ways to do this and the others will receive 1 piece

Three ways.
