19.1 Distributing objects into boxes Objects and boxes can be distinguishable (labeled) or indistinguishable (unlabeled). The number of distributing n objects to m boxes: n dist. objects, m dist. boxes: m n . n indist. objects, m dist. boxes: ( m + n - 1 m - 1 ) . n indist. objects, m indist. boxes: no closed form fomular The number of ways to partition n as sum of natural numbers: partition function p ( n ).

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
