Hi there, I'd like to explain if you'd tell we to explain something, just ask me what you want to know

def average(numbers):

#sum of the numbers

total = sum(numbers)

#making the integer a float

total = float(total)

#finding average

total = total / len(numbers)

#storing it until function is called

return total

Thanks Vidura!!

Especially for the pseudo explaining how it all works!

...before that I was sweatin it! Lol

What i don't understand is that they refer to the "list" numbers.

ofcourse there are several list with numbers. So if i set the argument of the function to numbers it will find by itself a list with numbers?

def get_average(student):

homework = average(student["homework"])

quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])

tests = average(student["tests"])

You can see dat next function calls the previous function with the lists one by one..

or you can do it in one function in one line. See example below:

(make sure CODE ACADEMY will not accept this answer, but it's working on my local Python 3.5.1 console)

numbers = [5, 7, 10] #this is my list of numbers

def average(numbers):

total = sum(numbers)

print (float(sum(numbers)) / len(numbers)) #I change return to print in order to see value on the console

average(numbers) #calling function

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]

}

def average(numbers):

sum(numbers)

total= sum(numbers)

total = float(total)

total/len(numbers)

return total

Keep getting this error:

Oops, try again. average([3, 0]) returned 3.0 instead of 1.5 as expected.

def average(numbers):

total = 0

total = sum(numbers)

total = float(total) / len(numbers)

return total

Its OK
