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
What are the ODDS?A Probability Story byNoor Barghouti
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
FLIGHT 445-NEW YORK
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!
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
Meg decided to go to go through gates D-F, hoping she had picked the right one...
Yes! The New York gate is here!
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...
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
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!
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...
