If 10 people each divide 4 balls — colored blue, green, orange, and purple — into 2 groups, is it possible for each of the 10 people to choose a different division?

**Note:** Each group must contain at least one ball. The groups are not labeled; a group is determined only by the balls it contains. Two divisions are considered different if there is a pair of balls that are both in the same group in one division but are in different groups in the other.

\[6 = 6, \quad 6 = 4 + 1 + 1, \quad 6 = 3 + 3, \quad \ldots \]
If 10 people each write 6 as a sum of **non-increasing** positive integers, is it possible for each of the 10 people to choose a different sum?

**Note:** The single number 6 is considered to be a sum, even though there is no \(+\) sign.

A sum of non-increasing positive integers is a sum whose terms do not increase from left to right (though they may remain constant). For example, \(6 = 4 + 1 + 1\) is a sum of non-increasing positive integers, since \(4 > 1 = 1,\) but \(1 + 4 + 1\) is not, since \(1 < 4.\)
