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

 

Please give me a nudge in the right direction

We have 4 choices for each ball, and each choice is independent. 

 

Think factorials

LuckyDucky you said to think factorials. The answer is 4^4 so where do you use the factorials?
