Solution

Total number of teachers in the college = 36
Number of ways of  selecting a principal = 36
Number of ways of selecting a vice-principal = 35 (as one of the teacher is already being selected for the post of principal)
Similarly, number of ways of selecting the teacher-incharge = 34
∴ Total number of ways of selecting all the three = 36\[\times\]35\[\times\]34 = 42840
