Young scholars investigate probability. They will define probability as the likelihood of an event occurring. Then, they determine the probability of sitting in a particular seat on a plane. They also set up ratios of various seating scenarios on the airplane, such as the likelihood of sitting in row 7 out of 30 rows.
