Cantor set

The ternary Cantor set can be constructed iteratively from the interval [0,1] by
removing at the n+1'th step the middle third of each interval obtained in the
n'th step.
Can anyone come up with a nice MMa formula for calculating the beginning and
end points of the k'th interval (counted from left) in the n'th iteration?

Thanks for any suggestions!
