comment Counting Hexagons in Triangle Grid Recurrence?
This is correct, thanks. I was fooled by the N=4 case into thinking that all hexagons that touch all three sides must have one side of n-2, which is true for N=4 but not true for higher values of N. For example for N=5 we can have a hexagon that results from chopping off triangles of side 2 removed from each corner of the grid.

comment N unlabelled balls in M labeled buckets
This proves it incorrect, however I still don't see what went wrong in my reasoning. The number of ways to put N labelled balls in M labelled buckets is $M^N$ correct? So why can't I just divide by the number of permutations of N balls to arrive at the unlabelled ball case?
