    there are 32 students and 6 medals for the first medal, we have 32 possibilities for the second medal, we have 31 possibilities, since one student already won the first medal for the third medal, we have 30 possibilities, and so on, until we get to the sixth medal our answer is 32*31*30*29*28*27
