**Jai**, Monday, April 4, 2011 at 10:10pmto do this, first we know that there are 18 ways for the first place (since there are 18 dogs), then 17 ways for the second place (18-1=17 since no dog can win two places), and 16 ways for the third. thus, we multiply these to get the number of ways:

18*17*16 = 4896 ways

hope this helps~ :)
