Of course they didn't understand the inverse square law.

To paraphrase the organiser of a course I once went on,

Mathematicians can do what the hell they like.

Scientists and engineers are allowed to use calculus

Technicians are allowed to use powers and reciprocals

Accountants are allowed to add and subtract otherwise it's fraud.

Everybody else is allowed to add single digits provided they don't do it too often and have a full set of fingers.
