6. "Just Weight and See" Error: Get_average(alice) raised the following error: 'float' object is not iterable


#1

The title is the error message that pops up.

This is my code:

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 = total / len(numbers)
    return total
    
def get_average(student):
    homework = average(student["homework"])
    quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
    tests = average(student["tests"])
    return sum(0.1 * homework + 0.3 * quizzes + 0.6 * tests)

What's wrong?? I'm really new to python

return sum(0.1 * homework + 0.3 * quizzes + 0.6 * tests)
                          ^               ^

sum() adds everything up in an iterable. What are you putting into sum()?
