comment Number of terms in a trinomial expansion
Is this also the case for a binomial? Because (x+y)^2 has only 3 terms, not 2^2 terms

comment Number of possible solutions for an equation
Well if we had four balls, then a wall at the end would represent z being zero. Ok so youre saying if were not including zero, then we cant have a wall at the end. But this works fine for our last case where we do include zeros? Looking through my notes, I do see a general form for this, but when we do include zeros, I dont understand the intuition of having 27 on top. Doing a manual count of possible positions of the wall, it seems like there would only be 26 possibilites..

Ok wait I think I get it, but why 24 and not 25 in the first case? What would putting a wall at the end of the last ball represent?
