In order to look like you are educated and you care about important things,
you go to a place that sells books by the foot (these places actually exist;
specify the color of books you want, and they send them to you). When your
order is delivered, you nd that ordering serious books by color means that
you now own 8 identical Bibles (black), 12 identical Qur'ans (green) and 6
identical copies of Marx's Das Kapital (red). In how many ways can you line
up your 26 new books left to right on a bookshelf?
