If you are flipping a coin 3 times, each flip is either H or T so there at 2x2x2=8 ways of this happening.
 
The tree diagram starts like this:
 
 
       /
     H
   /   \
 /
 \
   \   /
     T
       \
 
See if you can finish it.
 
All the sample points are equally likely so that helps you figure out the probabilities.
