    5^3 = 125

    **EDIT: Here's how there are more than 15:

    let each possibility be a, b or c:

    you can get:

    aaaaa

    aaaab

    aaaba

    aabaa

    abaaa

    baaaa

    aaabb

    aabab

    abaab

    aabba

    abbaa

    aaaac

    aaaca

    aacaa

    acaaa

    caaaa

    aaacc

    aaccc

    acccc

    baccc

    bcaaa

    cbaba

    cbabc

    abcbc

    ^^^That's already 24 possible outcomes
