What does this problem mean?

"If P < infinity, then its elements can be ordered xsub1,...,xsubn so that if xsubi < xsubj, then i<j
Estimate the growth (with n) of the number of such orderings. Call such admissible."
I think P is supposed to be a poset. Other than that I am not sure what the question is asking. Any help appreciated.
