whenever I run my code, I get an error message that says: get_average(alice) returned 13972.68 instead of the expected 91.15, What am I doing wrong?


lloyd = {
    "name": "Lloyd",
    "homework": [90.0, 97.0, 75.0, 92.0],
    "quizzes": [88.0, 40.0, 94.0],
    "tests": [75.0, 90.0]
}
alice = {
    "name": "Alice",
    "homework": [100.0, 92.0, 98.0, 100.0],
    "quizzes": [82.0, 83.0, 91.0],
    "tests": [89.0, 97.0]
}
tyler = {
    "name": "Tyler",
    "homework": [0.0, 87.0, 75.0, 22.0],
    "quizzes": [0.0, 75.0, 78.0],
    "tests": [100.0, 100.0]
}

# Add your function below!

def average(numbers):
    total = sum(numbers) 
    total = float(total)
    total /= len(numbers)
    return total

def get_average(student):
    homework = average(student["homework"]) * .1
    quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])  * .3
    tests = average(student["tests"])  * .6

    return homework * quizzes * tests

When you get an extremely large number (compared to expected), it probably means you've multiplied instead of added.
