The probability of snow for each of the next three days is 2/3. What is the probability that it will snow at least once during those three days? Express your answer as a common fraction. Thanks for the help guys!

By using Complementary Counting, you can find the probability that no days snow, and subtract that from $$1$$. The probability that no day snows is $$\frac{1}{3}*\frac{1}{3}*\frac{1}{3}=\frac{1}{27}$$, so the probability of it snowing at least one day is $$1 - \frac{1}{27}= \frac{26}{27}$$.
