Statistic problem about lottery

Hi, im having a problem figuring out how many combinations there are in a lottery. The specified lottery has 9 different symbols, the first symbol cans occur 3 times, the next symbol 4 times and so on... until 11, where the first prize is coined. In the end there will be 31 symbols. Can anyone help me figuring out how to get to the total sum of combinations?

Where do the 22 other symbols come from?
