Wink What is 2 + 2?

Ask a mathematician what 2 + 2 is and he/she will say "4".

Ask a statistician what 2 + 2 is and he/she will say "95% of all observed values of 2 + 2 are between 3.9 and 4.1".

Ask an electrical engineer what 2 + 2 is and he/she will say "4, plus or minus 20%".

Ask an accountant what 2 + 2 is and he/she will invite you into his/her office, close the door, close the window shades, and say "what do you want it to be?"
