Lets Solve this by patterns possible and there are

k!/(k−n)! ways to put k things into n ordered slots.

here k =3 and n ordered slots can understood as:

 

RRRRR here all beads of red color so it is 1 ordered slot

RRBBR here there are 2 things used so it is 2 ordered slot.

Now Let R =x, G=y, B=z

possible combinations

xxxxx: 3 = 3!/(3−1)!

xxxxy: 6 = 3!/(3−2)!

xxxyy: 6 = 3!/(3−2)!

xxxyz: 6 = 3!/(3−3)

xxyyz: 6 = 3!/(3−3)!​​​​​​​

xxyxy: 6 = 3!/(3−2)!

xxyxz: 6 = 3!/(3−3)!

xxyzy: 6 = 3!/(3−3)!

xyzyz: 6 = 3!/(3−2)!

3 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 = 51
