How many different ways can three people divide 7 pears and 5 apples?

Correct answer:

x =  756

Step-by-step explanation:

C2(9)=(92)=9!2!(92)!=9821=36 n1=7 n2=5 k=31=2  C2(7)=(72)=7!2!(72)!=7621=21  x1=(n1+kk)=(7+22)=36 x2=(n2+kk)=(5+22)=21  x=x1 x2=36 21=756

I think that you mixed up n and k. My understanding is that : n = 3, k1 = 7, k2 = 5

Why are (7 3) and (9 3) being multiplied?

its 9 choose 3.... its combinations with repetions - and use formula
