# Be approximately right

Far better an approximate answer to the right question, which is often vague, than an exact answer to the wrong question, which can always be made precise.

- John W Turkey

Consider the value of an answer along 2 axes: **accuracy** and **precision**.

- High
**accuracy**, low**precision**— "Pi is 3.14" - High
**precision**, low**accuracy**— "Pi is 5.230394891123039491203157"
