Trifecta

From Annie: I want to know how many combinations are there for the first 3 horses in
a race of 20 horses. For example, the horses can come in 1, 5, 7 or
7, 5, 1 which are totally different combos. I've only found formulas
where the 1, 2, 3 and 3, 2, 1 are counted as the same combo.
In horse racing every combo is different.
Thank you. Answered by Penny Nom. 





Combinations and horse races 
20071028 

From Ian: How do I calculate the number of combinations for:
Horse races,1 horse in each race.I want all combinations covered.
e.g.5 races, 1 horse in each race. R 1&2, R 1&3,R 1&4, R 2,3,4,5, R 1,2,3,4,5 etc etc.I have worked it out manually to 27 combinations
but if I want to cover more than 5 it will be a big excercise to work out the cost manually.
Many Thanks Answered by Victoria West.
