Simple combinatorics and probability theory related question
5 apples are randomly distributed to 4 boxes. We need to find probability that there are 2 boxes with 2 apples, 1 box with 1 apple and 1 empty box.
I'm getting the correct answer with (anyway, the answer is said to be 0.35, but I think it is a matter of rounding).
But I don't understand why there are elementary events in total. Firstly, I thought It should be - number of combinations with repetitions, but I couldn't get the proper answer.
Isn't approach with elementary events more correct?
