Odds of Order

If 'A' is a single event...
and 'B' is a single event...
and 'C' is a single event...
They can be lined up in 6 different Orders, i.e:
1.  A,B,C
2.  B,C,A
3.  C,A,B
4.  A,C,B
5.  B,A,C
6.  C,B,A
 
Therefore there are 6 orders to putting these 'events' in.
 
When you have four events, A,B,C,D, you have maximum 24 orders to order these 'events' in.
 
What is the formula to working out ten 'events', i.e. A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J?
