I walked by a holiday display, and noticed there were nine straw baskets, each one having a whole number of apples, at most 9, and possibly none. Then I also noticed the mean number of apples was 4, the median was 4, and the mode was 2. Is this possible, and if so, how many solutions are there?

(not counting the positions of the baskets)
