How to use "Mis calculations" in context?

We often make calculations wrong, but why do we do it? There are many reasons why we might make a calculation incorrectly, but some of the most common reasons are cognitive mis-information, faulty memory, and lazy thinking.

When we make a calculation, we use a number of mental skills and processes to come up with our answer. Sometimes these skills work perfectly, and we get the answer that we expected. Sometimes they don't, and we end up with a different answer.

The process of calculation can be broken down into four main stages: problem identification, problem solving, data gathering, and calculation.
