## (something) does not compute

cliché One cannot comprehend something; something does not make sense. An imitative reference to robots, computers, and artificial intelligences in pop culture and science fiction. It's clear that the concept of prioritizing people's welfare over the economy just does not compute for this government. I've been trying to wrap my head around these instructions, but they just do not compute!

## compute (something) at (some amount)

To determine the total to be a particular amount. Unfortunately, I computed the amount you owe at more than \$1,000.

## compute something at something
