Four professionals - including a mathematician, a physicist, an engineer, and an accountant - are interviewing for a math-intensive position in a company

Four professionals are interviewing for a math-intensive position in a company. The shortlist of applicants includes a mathematician, a physicist, an engineer, and an accountant.

To begin each interview, the representative from HR poses a simple math problem to warm up the candidates.

"What is 45 + 18?"

The mathematician immediately responds "63".

The physicist responds "63, plus or minus 5%".

The engineer thinks for a moment and responds "63, but for safety, let's call it 70".

The accountant shuts the door, checks over his shoulder, leans in close to the desk, and whispers:

"How much do you want it to be?"
