Quotes for Approximation:

The first approximation in this future that we're looking at is that everyone will be physically well off. They will have a great abundance in material goods, and I think that will soften some of the conflicts we see now.
Ralph Merkle. 
We are looking at a future where to a first approximation everyone is wealthy.
Ralph Merkle. 
If that enabled us to predict the succeeding situation with the same approximation that is all we require, and we should say that the phenomenon had been predicted, that it is governed by the laws.
Henri Poincare.
