**part (a)**

We have 30 to choose from for the first award, and 30 for the next and so on....

$$30^5=24300000$$

**part (b)**

We have 30 to choose from for the first award, *and then 29* for the next and so on...

$$30 \cdot 29 \cdot 28 \cdot 27 \cdot 26 =17100720$$

Surround your text in `*italics*`

or `**bold**`

, to write a math equation use, for example, `$x^2+2x+1=0$`

or `$$\beta^2-1=0$$`
