The starting point is the AverageTaxFactorCalculator class and its collaborator is TaxFactorFetcher, which is the provider of those values. The latter class picks one of the tax factors from the database (we'll stub that method). We will test those two classes as a unit.

public class AverageTaxFactorCalculator {

    private final TaxFactorFetcher taxFactorFetcher;

    public AverageTaxFactorCalculator(TaxFactorFetcher taxFactorFetcher) {
        this.taxFactorFetcher = taxFactorFetcher...
