If order matters, 50x49x48x47 = 5,527,200. If the order doesn't matter (which it probably doesn't, given that we're not selecting the winner, first runner-up, etc. directly), it's slightly trickier: there are 4!, or 24, ways of arranging four items, so we have to divide the larger number by 24 to get 230,300.
