The result of a tsql is 

tmtr    aMtr    bMtrpercentage  years   months
----------------------------------------------
4431	4380	51	0.988490	2010	7
8946	8946	0	1.000000	2010	8
1179	1083	96	0.918575	2010	10
----    -----   ----
14556   14409   147
-----   -----   -----

1. Total of Tmtr is 14556
2. Total of Amtr is 14409
So the Percentage of Amtr is calculated as 14409/14556 = 98.99%

But why this do not reconcile with (0.9884+1.00+0.9185)/3 = 96.89%

The percentage difference is 2.10 

Why is there difference?
