"This project is about the different appearances and patterns of fingerprints and how frequent a certain pattern shows up between different people's fingers on one of their hands. We chose to do this project out of curiosity and to see what the results would look like. Our result was many people had a consistent fingerprint pattern on each of the fingers on one of their hands, and that a certain pattern showed up more than any other pattern in our experiment, though some of the results may have been incorrect as some fingerprints were blotchy in appearance when printed. Our project is important because it helps in forensic investigations to identify and link a certain person from a group of people to a situation, such as a crime, by using the patterns of a fingerprint."
