**bobpursley**, Wednesday, October 20, 2010 at 8:19pmI am uncertai what you want. If there is only one office, then any of the ten can win, and so, there are 10 possible results.

Now if you are wanting to see how many different ways 1st, 2nd, 3rd place and so on, then

waystofinish= 109*8*....= 10!
