Someone asked an accountant a mathematician, an engineer, a statistician, and an actuary to answer "2 + 2 = ?"

The accountant said "4."

The mathematician said "It all depends on your number base."

The engineer took out his slide rule and said: "Approximately 3.99."

The statistician consulted his tables and said: "I am 95% confident that it lies between 3.95 and 4.05."

The actuary said: "What do you want it to add up to?"
