SyntaxError: invalid syntax


I'm getting this error for my code. What did I do wrong?


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]

# Add your function below!

    quizzes = average(student["quizzes"] * 0.3,

    return homework + quizzes + tests

try this
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)
avg=total/float(len(numbers))
return avg

def get_average(student):
homework = average(student["homework"]) * 0.1
quizzes = average(student["quizzes"] )* 0.3
tests = average(student["tests"])* 0.6
s=homework + quizzes + tests
return s

It worked, thank you!

lloyd = {
"name": "Lloyd",
"homework": [90.0, 97.0, 75.0, 92.0],

"tests": [75.0, 90.0]
}

"quizzes": [0.0, 75.0, 78.0],
"tests": [100.0, 100.0]
}

def average(numbers):
total = sum(numbers)
total = float(total)
result = total /float(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
s=homework + quizzes + tests
return s

Oops, try again. get_average(alice) returned 227.4 instead of the expected 91.15
