An art collector ,who owns 10 original paintings, is preparing a will. In how many ways may the collector leave these paintings to three heirs?

Since the 10 paintings are DISTINCT and the 3 heirs are obviously DISTINCT, and since there ar NO restrictions, then the number of ways of disributing them is:

 

3^10 = 59,049 ways of distribting them among the 3 heirs.
