I have recently cracked a password for a zip file using brute force which got me thinking. Lets say that the password is only 3 digits, how many outcome could it possibly have?

I know it's 999 but is there a equation that I can use to figure this out?

or lets say that it contains only 3 alphabets, how many outcome could it possibly have, or lets say that the password's length is three characters and it could have either alphabets or numbers, what are the possible outcome?

Please give me brief explanation and some equation.

Thanks
