Math Problem of the week #4

With different words, this is a problem I encountered in real life.

Three kids are sitting in a row. Each of them guesses a number 1-3. What is the chance that two or more of them pick the same number? Answer as a percent rounded to the nearest whole percent. (example: 45.6% rounded to the nearest percent is 46%)
