# 6. Just Weight and See

Not sure why this is happening:
get_average(alice) raised the following error: sum expected at most 2 arguments, got 3

I see that it is counting the 3 arguments (avg of homework, quizzes and tests) but not sure why it is expecting "at most 2."

``````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)
return float(total)/len(numbers)

student = [lloyd, alice, tyler]

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)``````

That was accepted! Thanks for your help finding that.
