a)

Since each flip has two possible outcome, {H,T}.

Then, using product rule, the total number of different sequences of heads and tails can be calculated as,

Hence, the number of different sequences of heads and tails is 512.

b) The number of different sequences of heads and tails having exactly five heads can be calculated as

Here, the value of r is number of exactly five heads

c)

The number of different sequences having at most 2 heads means the number of heads is not more than or equal to 1.

The value of r can be represented as,

Hence, the number of different sequences having at most 2 heads is 10

Counting integer solutions for a system of inequalities

I wish to enumerate the number of solutions of the system of equations and inequalities for 3 non-negative integer unknowns $x,y,z\ge 0$: ($a$,$b$ specified)

$\begin{array}{rl}x+y+z& =a\\ x+y& >b\\ y+z& >b\end{array}$

Is there an elegant way of finding the number of solutions or must I use an exhaustive numerical algorithm?
