Thank you. Your count matches what I have from my program which solved it by brute-force, so it has to be correct.

No. You do not replace the cards. You draw cards in the traditional sense of drawing cards from a deck, meaning once card A is drawn, it cannot be drawn again. Independent means the current set of drawn cards doesn't affect the result of drawing the next card. And yes, you are essentially only drawing from 36 cards.

Thanks, it should be called "integer linear programming" to be more exact.

Can you please show some outline of the steps needed to go from second to the third line?

Well, your expression is actually incorrect. It should be $e^{- \lambda}$

Unfortunately, we haven't learned probability generating functions yet.

Sure. Right, so that's what I have been doing, but it's not obvious.
