# 6 - Just Weight and See

#1

Cant figure out this error code. Ive been searching the forums for answers but Im lost at this point.

``````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)
total =total / len(numbers)
print "tyler average %s" %average(tyler["homework"])
print "alice average %s" %average(alice["homework"])
print "lloyd average %s" %average(lloyd["homework"])

def average(numbers):
total = sum(numbers)
total = float(total)
total =total / len(numbers)
student = [lloyd, alice, tyler]
def get_average(student):
homework = average(student["homework"])
quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
tests = average(student["tests"])
weighted = ("homework"*0.1)+("quizzes"*0.3)+("tests"*0.6)
return weighted.``````

Oops, try again. get_average(alice) raised the following error: can't multiply sequence by non-int of type 'float'

I figured it out... I feel so dumb now.

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)
total =total / len(numbers)
print "tyler average %s" %average(tyler["homework"])
print "alice average %s" %average(alice["homework"])
print "lloyd average %s" %average(lloyd["homework"])

def average(numbers):
total = sum(numbers)
total = float(total)
total =total / len(numbers)
student = [lloyd, alice, tyler]
def get_average(student):
homework = average(student["homework"])
quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
tests = average(student["tests"])
weighted = (homework*0.1)+(quizzes*0.3)+(tests*0.6)
return weighted

for those that had the same problem get rid of the " " in the BOLD line!
