There are 25 students: 10 Greek, 8 Finns, 2 Russians, and 5 Swedes. The students study in groups. A "group" always consists of one or more students. If a group has at least 2 students that are of same nationality, then the group has to have at least one student who is of a different nationality. How many different ways are there to divide the 25 students to groups?

Any help? :( I am in a hurry with this one!
