If the coins are somehow distinguished, then the sample space is {HHH, HHT, HTH, THH, HTT, THT, TTH, TTT} consists of 8 outcomes.

part 2:

based on your answer to part A, how many outcomes consists of 3 heads or 3 tails?

2 outcomes consist of 3 heads or 3 tails (HHH and TTT)

part 3:

during a math class, each of 24 students tossed three coins once. based on your answer to part B, how many students would you expect to get a result of 3 heads or 3 tails?

The probability of getting a result of HHH or TTT is 2/8 = 1/4. Then among 24 students there would be 24/4 = 6 who got this result (it is the most probable result, actually the number of students who get either HHH or TTT may be diffferent).
