Yes, you miscalculated.

Miscalculate means that you made the mistake accidentally without realizing the error. Wrongly calculate also means meaning you made the mistake without realizing the error BUT you used a wrong method to calculate that you thought was right. For example, you used the ordinary average method instead of using the standard deviation method.
