Here's a problem which is bugging me :( . Need your help guys to solve this:

A certain stock exchange designates each stock with a one-, two- or three-letter code, where each letter is selected from the 26 letter alphabet. If the letters may be repeated and the same letter used in different order constitute a different code, how many different stocks is it possible to uniquely designate with these codes?
- 2,951
- 8,125
- 15,600
- 16,302
- 18,278
