Snow White has 50 one-dollar bills, which she wishes to divide up among seven different dwarves. Each dward may receive any (integra) number of bills, from 0 to 50. How many different ways can she distribute this money?

My logic is 51*51*51*51*51 cauz its from 0 to 50

but the answer is C(56,6)=32,468,436
I think here 6 means 0 + 5 times 51. I may wrong needs help
