How to use "Inexactness" in context?

Inaccuracy is a common problem in any endeavor, but it is especially likely in science and mathematics. There are a variety of reasons why inexactness can arise. The most common cause is the variability of experimental results. Scientists will often try to account for this variability by using mathematical models, but these models can often be inaccurate because they don't take into account the actual variability of the data. Another reason for inaccuracy is that scientists may make mistakes when they are thinking about or solving problems. For example, they may not consider all the possible solutions to a problem.
