We have three diff balls and three diff box .

Now at most one box is empty - so there are two cases

1. None box is empty

2. One box is empty

therefore , if none box is empty number of ways =3x2x1 =6

if one box is empty , we can choose that box in 3 ways and the 3 balls can be put in two boxes in 3P2 ways .

so number of ways in case 2= 3x3p2= 3x6=18

therefore total number of ways = 18+6=24
