If a school bus leaves school with 48 students on board, and one-half of the students get off the bus at each of the first three stops, how many students remain on the bus after the third stop?

First stop - 48/2 =24

Second stop - 24/2=12

Final stop - 12/2=6

6 students remain.

48 (1/2)^3  =

48 * (1/8)  =

6   .....just as    4M found   !!!

At each stop, the number of students on the bus is cut in half. Therefore, after 3 stops, the number of students on the bus is $$48(\frac12)^3 = \frac{48}8 = \boxed{6}$$ .
