A board game contains three bags: a blue one, a red one, and a green one. The game also
contains 5 gaming chips labeled with the numbers 1 to 5.

In how many ways can all the chips be distributed over the bags so that the red bag
is not empty?

It would be worth having a read of the forum sticky / posting guidelines about posting some working / ideas / .... rather than just posting the question.

For instance, if you just had two bags (red and green) and the red is non empty and three gaming chips. Can you solve that / generalize the method? If not, what is your difficulty?
