Abe, Bobby, Charles, Devin and Edwin are the participants in a race. How many different 1st-2nd-3rd place outcomes are possible if there are no ties? Two different outcomes to include are Bobby-Devin-Edwin and Devin-Bobby-Edwin.
So would I go 3x3x3 or 3x2x1? im confused
Any 3 can finish 1st
And, after this, any 2 can finish second
3 x 2 = 6 possible finishing orders
