1st Q:
I mean i there are 3 bowls and 7 toys. So why is th no. of ways 37 and not 3 times 7.

And I didnt understand the question properly.

# Sir, I didn't understand that toy and bowl example ( IN HOW MANY WAYS CAN 7 TOYS BE DISTRIBUTED IN 3 BOWLS/IN HOW MANY WAYS CAN 7 TOYS BE DISTRIBUTED IN 3 BOWLS SUCH THAT EACH BOWL HAS AT LEAST ONE TOY)in the video.

1)

As we know there are three choices (3 bowls) for each of the 7 toys.  Therefore, by  the fundamental principle of multiplication ,the

total number of ways = 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 = 37= 2,187 ways.

2)

Any three toys can be arranged in 3 bowls in 3! = 6 ways,
Now remaining 4 toys where a bowl can hold any number of toys.
So number of ways of putting those 4 toys in 3 bowls is 34 = 81.
Total number of ways = 6x81 = 486
