Which situation can be modeled by tossing a coin three times?
choosing which one of sixteen teams will win a tournament
selecting a desk from thirty-six in a classroom
deciding which English teacher of eight will win a trip to London
picking one of six math teachers
divide the eight teachers into two groups of four A and B
Toss coin, group A wins.
Divide the four English teachers into two groups of two C and D.
Toss coin, group C wins
Now the two teachers in group toss the third coin to see who goes to London.
Note: 2^3 = 8
