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.

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