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]
}

# Add your function below!
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)
