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

 

thank you so much in advance to whoever solves this problem!

The only difference is how many balls are in each box

 

you can have all in one box

you can have 3 in one box and 1 in any other

you can have 2 in 2 boxes

you can have 2 in one box and 1 in two there boxes

you can have 1 in each box.

 

That seems to be 5 ways.

I'm sure you could have done it all by yourself.

But you are welcome :)
