Similarly, there two ways to put the second object in a bag and two ways to put the third object. So there are 2(2)(2)= 8 ways to put two objects in three bags.

Let apple 1 be 1, apple 2 be 2 and apple 3 be 3. Then there are (8 / 2 = 4) possibilities. {(), (1,2,3)} {(1), (2,3)} {(2), (1,3)} {(3), (1,2)} As you can't tell the bags apart, the order doesn't matter.
