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 last response I got was wrong. PLEASE HELP!

So  this  number  is

 

P(15,3)  =  2730  ways
