# Himadri's Book Boxes

**Discrete Mathematics**Level 3

To finalize packing for his move, Himadri has 5 textbooks (in the subjects of math, chemistry, physics, computer science, and biology) that he has to pack up. He has three boxes which are not full - a red box, a blue box and a green box. Himadri is going to pack the 5 books into these 3 boxes. How many different ways can Himadri choose which boxes the books go into?

**Details and assumptions**

The order that the books are placed into the box doesn't matter. It only matters which books are in which boxes.

Each box can accommodate up to 5 books.

Himadri might choose to not put any books into one or more of the boxes, but each book must go into a box.
