    Unanswered: Count returning incorrect value??

    Hello
    I am having trouble with the count function.
    Im trying to count the number of males and females in my client db.

    For some reason I cannot fathom i have to divide the answer by 3 like this,:
    =-Sum([Gender]="Male")/3
    We have 10 boys but the count coming back is 10.666666 so it wants to round to 11 which is then incorrect.
    What am i doing?

    Thanks

    Tracy
