at least 2 means that 2 or 3

P(all 3)=4/5*3/4*2/3=2/5
P(2)=[4/5*3/4*1/3]+[3/4*2/3*1/5]+[4/5*2/3*1/4]=1/5+1/10+2/15=13/30

P=2/5+13/30=25/30=5/6

prob of hitting zero shots = 1/5 * 1/4 *1/3 = 1/60

prob of hitting exactly one shot = 4/5 * 1/4*1/3 + 1/5* 3/4 * 2/3 + 1/5 * 1/4 * 2/3 = 9/60

P(0) + P(1) = 1/60 + 9/60 = 10/60 =1/6

required prob = 1- 1/6 = 5/6
