    Horse Race

    in horse race, there is a bet called the superfecta where you have to pick the finished order 1,2,3, and 4. There are 8 horses in the race. If i pick all 8 to finish first and 6 of the eight to finish second and 5 of the 8 to finish third and all 8 to finish last, what and how are the number of bets figured out?
