The maximum number of triplets out of 7 numbers is \(7C3 = \frac{7!}{4!3!} = 35\). Then, given that there is 0 as one of the numbers, each time the triplet contains zero, the product is zero. Thus, we are over-counting the results. We have to subtract the copies from the total number.

The number of triplets which contains 0 is 15, thus there are 14 copies. The number of unique results is 35-14 = 21.
