This is how you solve it. k = N/R. K is number of ways, N is the total number of objects in the collection. R is the total of each unique objects in the
collection.

N = 6

R = Object "0" = 3, Object "1" = 2, Object "6" = 1.

K = 6!/(3!*2!*1!) : You can get rid 1! b/c thats just one

K = 6*5*4*3!/3!*2! --> you can get rid of 3! since that cancels out

K = 120 / 2 = 60 ways.
