Discuss this oxymoron in the comments below.
Approximation: A representation of something that is not exact, but still close enough to be useful.
Equal: Having the same quantity, measure, or value as another.
In the end: A not exactly same value, or a more or less similarity between n somethings.
NOT AN OXYMORON, just another fake…
