[Numpy-discussion] average() or mean() errors

When calling the average() or mean() functions on a small array (3
numbers), I am seeing significant numerical errors (on the order of 1%
with data to 8 significant digits). The code I am using is essentially:
A = zeros(3)
A[i] = X
B = average(A)
Is there something else I need to call to get better accuracy? Writing
my own average function has sufficed, but I am curious if I am just
calling the function wrong.
