Storyboard Text

  • Hello, and welcome to our annual basketball game between the Lions and the Crocs. My team, the Lions, has 8 players, but we can only have five members on the court at a time. I need your help to figure out how many different combinations I can make with the people on my team.
  • Here we all are in the auditorium. Now, you can count us and help us decide the different kinds of groups that could be made with five of us. Just remember, it does not matter what order you put us in the groups.
