pls i need help. i cant figure out what is wrongwith 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]
}

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

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
``````

6. Just Weight and See

here:

``````return   = 0.1 * homework + 0.3 * quizzes + 0.6 * tests
``````

why would you use a equal sign? we want to return the result of `0.1 * homework + 0.3 * quizzes + 0.6 * tests`, not assign it to return (which is what you do by using an equal sign here)

thanks for showing concern, but i have done the correction it’s still showing me error.

what error are you getting?

this line:

``````  def get_average(student):
``````

has 2 spaces indent, not sure why?

#5

you are very correct about the 2 spaces, that was the cause, i figured it out. thanks a lot, am really grateful. i appreciate.
