Hello. I am using the Smooth.m mathematica package on a large set of paired data points. Occasionally, instead of getting a number in my output array, I end up with something like this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. (0.861515 + (58 "")/2379)

In the output window, the quotes are not visible, but when I copypasta it as input, I can see them. I've played around, and they seem to prevent the expression from being evaluated (perhaps by converting the numerator to a String?). I've tried using ToExpression[], but that doesn't seem to work out.

This is important because the random five or so points I get like this prevent me from using the smoothed output list as an array of Reals.

Thanks for any advice. I'm on OSX with Mathematica 8
