Default Calculating The "Average" Function Of Xn

Page 63 seems to be saying this:

For each data set, evaluate the hypothesis for that data and save it somewhere. When all of the data has been processed take each data point and calculate the "average" value of that data point evaluated against each of the previously generated hypotheses. That average value can be used to calculate the variance of the data set.

So this is just a straightforward averaging calculation, is it not? I'm having some difficulty duplicating the variance values shown in the examples from the book and suspect that this calculation may be the source of the problem.

Thanks for your attention.
