### Abstract

This project helps students to examine how the likelihood of having a tax return examined is influenced by whether the taxpayer requests a refund or not. This is one of the last projects I use in Finite Math so students are expected to attack the problem with a limited number of scaffolding resources.

### Project Content

### Scaffolding Resources

### Notes

Interpreting which probabilities the numbers correspond to is the most challenging aspect of this project.
