Five gift cards (one 100-dollar card, one 50-dollar card, one 25-dollar card and two 10-dollar card) have to be assigned to ten kids such that each kid receives no more than one card. In how many ways can these five cards be distributed?

(numeric entry question)

5^{10} ?

Let’s keep 5 gift cards in 5 rooms. We can send the first kid to any one of the 5, second one to any one of the 5, and so on.

Are we missing any other constraint?

thank you, there is no constraint. but the answer is not 5^10

Is the answer 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 2 = 240. Will explain the approach.

Well then, I’m unable to decode what the question is asking. The question seems awfully vague.

thanks my man koushik, always helps me when i post a problem

thanks no the answer is not 240, can i post the answer

Yup sure, what is it?
