I need help with this question

There are $15$ runners 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 $15$ runners?

The number of ways is 15*3*14*2*13*1 = 16380.

$$15 \cdot 14 \cdot 13 = \boxed{2730}$$
