# Integer Partitions

I found an interesting question based on integer partitions with limits.

At a shooting competition, a man can get 0,1,2,3,4,5 points for each shot. He shoots 7 times. Find the total number of ways of getting 10 points overall.

is scoring 1,1,2,1,1,1,0 the same as 2,1,1,1,0,1 ??

No they are different, since this question requires the total number of possible different sets.

Isn't anyone going to try solving it and get the correct answer? xD
