27.A and B are highly truthful (they each tell the truth randomly
3/4 of the time. Also, A's and B's truthfulness are independent.
Suppose A and B both look out the window to see what the weather is
like. A says, "It's raining." B says, "It's raining." What is the
probability that it actually is raining.
