CAT 2022 Question Paper (Slot 1) - Quant Question 10

Question 10

The number of ways of distributing 20 identical balloons among 4 children such that each child gets some balloons but no child gets an odd number of balloons, is


Correct Answer: 84

Solution

Let the number of balloons each child received be 2a, 2b, 2c and 2d

2a + 2b + 2c + 2d = 20

a + b + c + d = 10

Each of them should get more than zero balloons.

Therefore, total number of ways = $$(n-1)_{C_{r-1}}=(10-1)_{C_{4-1}}=9_{C_3}=84$$
