This Humors Me

In order to calculate our semester grades, we multiply our first nine weeks grade by 3 and our second nine weeks grade by 3. Then, we add up those two totals plus the exam grade. Here is my history calculations:

First nine weeks: 97 x 3 = 291
Second nine weeks: 99 x 3 = 297
Exam Grade: 95

Add them together... = 683
Divide 683 by 7... = 97.57

Which would mean that my semester grade should be a 98%. However, according to my ap history teacher, my semester grade should be an 88%. Somebody please tell me how that works.
