There are 15 gymnasts in the Olympic women's competition, including 4 Americans. The gold medal goes to first place, silver to second, and bronze to third. In how many ways can the medals be awarded to three of the 15 gymnasts?
Sorry, I thought the three gymnasts were already deteremined
I got my answer it was 15*14*13= 2730 ways
Do the 4 Americans matter in this problem?
No, they dont
