  For starters, this just returns mean(amps[1]). 'mean' computes the mean of the first argument, the others are slurped up by '...' and in this case thrown into the bin. You want to do mean(c(amps[1],amps[2],amps[3] and so on. Wrap them into a single vector.

  For main course, I think you can do it like this:

getAR <- function(v.amps){

   sv=sort(v.amps)
   sum(sv[1:3])/mean(sv[-(1:3)])
}

  An example input/output would be nice. My code gives:

> amps<-c(1,2,3,3,3,2,1)
> getAR(amps)
  [1] 1.454545

  but I still dont know if that's what it should be!

  For dessert, I don't think its a scoping issue, I think you've not really explained what the problem is...
