Sum of three natural numbers =1000
I found this question online and I can't seem to solve part ii. Can anyone offer insight? How many ways can you find three natural numbers, each bigger than 0, such that their sum is 1000. Suppose (i) we care about the order of the numbers and (ii) we do not care about the order of the numbers.

Do you have access to the textbook? If you do, the answer to that question can be found on page 64 in Lesson 7. If you don't have the book, I can send you a picture of the said page on Facebook.
