We consider critical site percolation on the triangular lattice in the upper half-plane. Let u1,u2 be two sites on the boundary and w a site in the interior. It was predicted by Simmons et al. (2007) that the ratio P(nu1虠nu2虠nw)2/P(nu1虠nu2).P(nu1虠nw).P(nu2虠nw) converges to KF as n→8, where x虠y denotes that x and y are in the same cluster, and KF is a constant. Beliaev and Izyurov (2012) proved an analog of this in the scaling limit. We prove, using their result and a generalized coupling argument, the earlier mentioned prediction. Furthermore we prove a factorization formula for P(nu2虠[nu1,nu1+s];nw虠[nu1,nu1+s]), where s>0.
