3rd and 10 would usually refer to Third down and 10 yards to go to get a first down.

1st and 30 would usually refer to First down and 30 yards to go to get a first down. 1st and 30 would only happen if there were a penalties on the offense that moved them 20 yards back, could be a combination of penalties.
