Average value for last 3 months returns incorrect average

Hi all,

 

Screenshot 2022-05-24 162413.jpg

I want to calculate the average for the last 3 month and calculate the following formula:

Rolling 3 = CALCULATE(AVERAGE('Master June 2021'[Value (USD)]),DATESINPERIOD('Master June 2021'[Month Year],MAX('Master June 2021'[Month Year]),-3,MONTH))

 

PB is getting me this result for the 1st set of numbers: 3,268,796.13

 

But I'm expecting 3,268,821.13 =(3,265,269.82+3,269,615.35+3,271,578.22)/3

 
Why is it different ?
 
Thanks
