Quick question about host memory in vmware

If I have a host that has 3 guest machines and each machine is assigned 1 Gig of memory, why does the 'memory usage' on the summary page of the host report 4147.00MB? I'm curious because I have to squeeze in some machines on that host temporarily and counting it by 'host mem' on the virtual machines tab it will fit but going by what the memory usage is of the host they will not fit.

Thanks,
BW

This is because the it includes memory used by the Service Console, VMkernel, vSphere services, and the total consumed metrics for all running virtual machines.
