trig

if 10 students enter projects in the art show, how many different ways can they come in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place?

would you go 10^3
OR 10TIMES 3?

This is not a trig question.
Neither of those answers is correct.
After making one of ten possible choices for first place, there are 9 possible choices for second place, etc.
The answer is 10*9*8 = 720
