SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Not sure why my final return function isn't working. Any advice appreciated.


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],

# 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"]) * 0.1
    quizzes = average(student["quizzes"]) * 0.3
    tests = average(student["tests"] * 0.6
    return sum(homework, quizzes, tests)

Solved, nevermind :grinning:


#3

can you please tell me how you solved it as I am stuck and confused how to do this part


#5

work for me
def get_average(student):
homework = average(student["homework"])
quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
tests = average(student["tests"])

    return 0.1 * homework + \
    0.3 * quizzes + \
    0.6 * tests

Didin't work for me.

    for student in students:
        homework = average(student["homework"])
        quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
        tests = average(student["tests"])
        return 0.1 * homework + \
        0.3 * quizzes + \
        0.6 * tests

=

get_average(alice) returned 80.55 instead of the expected 91.15

Solved. The for student in students was the problem.
