Storyboard Text

  • Once upon a time, there was a girl named Meg who was going to New York from San Diego to visit her best friend that lived there
  • AIRPORT
  • ALBANY
  • What are the ODDS?A Probability Story byNoor Barghouti
  • COMFORT AIRLINES
  • Once arriving, she went to check-in and received her boarding pass, going straight to security check after
  • Meg completed security check, but along the way, she lost her boarding pass!! Meg, ultimately, was heartbroken.
  • Sobbing in the airport, Meg wept to herself:
  • I can't believe I lost my ticket! I don't know which gate to go to now to get a new one!
  • Meg, however, persevered! She went throughout the airport trying to find her correct gate, as it was the only way for her to get a new boarding pass
  • INTERNATIONAL GATES
  • FLIGHT 445-NEW YORK
  • NATIONAL GATES
  • If I didn't know where I was going, I'd have a 1/2 chance of picking the right gate, but since I am going to New York from San Diego, I must go right to the national gates!
  • GATES A-C
  • GATES D-F
  • Hmm..the only thing I remember from my ticket is that the gate letter was a vowel, so that only leaves me with a 1/3 chance of picking the right gate
  • GATES G-I
  • GATES J-L
  • Meg decided to go to go through gates D-F, hoping she had picked the right one...
  • GATES D-F
  • Yes! The New York gate is here!
  • FLIGHT 455-PORTLAND
  • FLIGHT 441-PHOENIX  
  • Said Meg
  • YAY!! Meg chose the right section! But she still didn't know which gate was for New York
  • What could give me a hint to which gate is for New York??
  • She decided to think a little more...
  • GATE D
  • GATE E
  • I remember more! My gate letter wasn't one of the first 3 letters of the alphabet, that leaves me with a 1/2 or 50% chance of picking the right gate
  • GATE F
  • Yes! Here you go, and hurry! Your plane departs in 3 minutes!
  • Meg picked gate F with an even chance of being right or wrong, and as a result...she was right! What are the ODDS?
  •  Meg freaking RAN as fast as she could!
  • I lost my boarding pass earlier! Can I get a new one??
  • Meg took away different odds that weren't necessary for her to calculate the probability of her correct gate, leaving her with only the necessary conditions
  • Congrats! You barely made it!
  • GATE F-NY
  • WAIT!!!!!
  • Meg made her flight and was happy that she did! However, she was seated next to a screaming baby..
  • WAAA! I WANT MY MOMMY!
  • Ladies and gentlemen we have begun our official trip to New York City, please enjoy these next 6 hours to the fullest!
  • I should've stayed home...
  • The End
