# A coin is tossed 3 times and the outcomes are recorded. How many possible outcomes are there?

**Solution:**

Given the coin is tossed 3 times. When a coin is tossed there are only 2 possible outcomes (head and tail). Thus,

No. of ways of the first outcome = 2

No. of ways of the second outcome = 2

No. of ways of the third outcome = 2

By fundamental counting principle,

Total possible number of ways = 2×2×2 = 8
