It's half of a half of a half of a whole. Thus: $\left(\dfrac{1}{2}\right) \left(\dfrac{1}{2}\right) \left(\dfrac{1}{2}\right)1=\dfrac{1}{2^3}=2^{-3}$For more solutions to textbook problems, be sure to check out http://www.slader.com/s/eWFrZXlnbGVl . I submit a lot of content there as well.

Whoops sorry, he had two sheets of paper: thus we have a half of a half of a half of two wholes: $\left(\dfrac 12\right)\left(\dfrac 12\right)\left(\dfrac 12\right)2 = \dfrac{2}{2^3}=\dfrac{1}{2^2}=2^{-2}$
