Chapter 4, Section 4.2, Problem 20b

Suppose you are eating at a pizza parlor with two friends. You have agreed to the following rule to decide who will pay the bill. Each person will toss a coin. The person who gets a result that is different from the other two will pay the bill. If all three tosses yield the same result, the bill will be shared by all. Find the probability that all three will share.
