I am trying to work out how many combinations there are for ten events each with three possible outcomes.

Example:If you take 10 football matches each having three outcomes e.g home win,draw,away win, how many possible outcomes are there for all mathches and outcomes.

I was told it might be 10 to the power of 3 but not sure and dont know how to work that out anyway.

Thankyou in advance
