# Puzzle | Is it Raining

A Geek is about to get a plane to Hyderabad. Geek wants to know if it’s raining. Geek calls 3 random friends staying at Hyderabad to ask this question. Each friend has a 2/3 chance of telling the truth and 1/3 chance of lying. All the three friends gave the response as “Yes, it is Raining”.

Q. What is the probability that it’s actually raining in Hyderabad?

**Answer: **26/27

**Explanation:**

The Geek only requires one of the friends to be telling the truth.

The probability that at least one of them is telling the truth will be:

1 - (Probability that all of them Lied)

The probability that all of them lied is **1/27**. i.e. 1/3 * 1/3 * 1/3

So, now the probability that at least one of them told the truth is: 1 – (1/27) = **26/27**.

So, it is approximately 96% that it is raining in Hyderabad.
