I never criticized my kids for struggling
With arithmetic. The mathematicians'
Rigid rules were not iron-clad to me.
A month or so ago in bed, we proved
That one and one makes one, and, now
You call to tell me one and one, as one,
Can turn out to be three.

i like to compare soft sciences and hard sciences where the rules are so frozen that the mathematician must get round

Lol ... that's the beauty of math. The methods may change to arrive at an answer, but the result will always be one correct one.
It saves a lot of problems like you are having now. :)
