If former then , person 1 can receive one out of 5 ice creams then 2nd person can recieve ... implies ? Note: I am thinking from the shopkeeper side as if i am shopkeeper and i am distributing . (so not 3^5)

Hi I have a doubt regarding a topic “Binomial coeffiecients and identities” so my doubt is, this topic is important for gate or not, means i study this section “Binomial coeffiecients and identities” of chapter 6 in Rosen book for gate or any questions will be asked from this section previously gate exams. Thank you

A group of 5 friends sitting on a bench. You have joined them with 8 sweets.All of you decided to share among ourself. The number of ways this distribution is possible is ___ i am getting ans 1287 but answer given is 20160 my approach is distribution of undistinguishable objects into distinguishable boxes. so formula is n+r-1Cr here n =6,r=8 so ans is 13C8

Each user on a computer system has a password, which is six to eight characters long, where each character is an uppercase letter or a digit. Each password must contain at least one digit. How many possible passwords are there? Answer is given in book as : P^6 + P^7 + P^8; where P^6 = 36^6 – 26^6 and so on for P^7 and P8. My question is why can’t we calculate P^6 like 36^5 * C(6,1) * 10 ?
