#### Abstract

Let $\mathbb{N}_n = \{ 1, 2, \dots , n \}$.We sample with replacement from the set $\mathbb{N}_n$, assuming that each element has the same probability of being drawn. We determine the limiting distributions and some related properties of the waiting time $M_n$ until all triples $j j j , j \in \mathbb{N}_n$ are sampled.
