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...

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

Your Answer

Surround your text in *italics* or **bold**, to write a math equation use, for example, $x^2+2x+1=0$ or $$\beta^2-1=0$$

Use LaTeX to type formulas and markdown to format text. See example.
