I have five apples and ten oranges. If a fruit basket must contain at least one piece of fruit, how many kinds of fruit baskets can I make? (The apples are identical and the oranges are identical. A fruit basket consists of some number of pieces of fruit, and it doesn't matter how the fruit are arranged in the basket.)

5. I assumed that each basket must have at least one piece of each kind of fruit. But if that is not a criteria, then you could have 15 baskets with only one piece of fruit in each.
