LET THE THREE NOS BE x,y,z such that x>y>z

let x-y=k where k>0

y-z=j j>0

this implies that

x+y+z=3z+2j+k where z<28

no of solutions=coefficient of x30 in (x+x2+..........x27)3(x+x2=......)2(x+x2=......)

=coefficient of x30 in x6(1-x)-6

=coefficient of x24 in (1-x)-6

=24C5

in the above solution coefficient of x6 would be 29C5.

APURV PLEASE IGNORE THE ABOVE SOLUTION. IT WAS WRONG.

THE CORRECT SOLUTION IS AS FOLLOWS.

ET THE THREE NOS BE x,y,z such that x>y>z

let x-y=k where k>0

y-z=j j>0

this implies that

x+y+z=3z+2j+k where z<28

no of solutions=coefficient of x30 in (x3+x6+..........x27)(x2+x4......)(x+x2 +......)

=coefficient of x30 in x6(1-x3)-1(1-x2)-1(1-x)-1

=61
