# What if my question was not well defined and I got two types of answers?

My question How to divide natural number N into M nearly equal summands? was not well defined from the math point of view.

If it would programmers site I would definitely award answer saying what I wanted to get.

But in mathematics this can be incorrect.

What should I do?
