<In what way does your code behave incorrectly? Include ALL error messages.>

Hi everyone. just a quick query really. i believe that i have finished the code for the ‘Sending a letter’ section of the python tutorial. however my query is that upon completion and running of the section of code ‘’‘print get_letter_grade(get_average(alice))’’’ shouldn’t i get a response on the command UI? i’ve been trying yo figure it out but each time i run the code, codecademy ticks to say that i have passed this section however i have not received any response (ie the print statement) on the interpreter. shouldnt i get a response printed out? if not could anyone be so helpful and explain to me why i am not? thanks!



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)
  total = total/len(numbers)
  return total

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

def get_letter_grade(score):
  if score >= 90:
    return 'A'
  elif score >= 80:
    return 'B'
  elif score >= 70:
    return 'C'
  elif score >= 60:
    return 'D'
  else:
    return 'F'
  
  print get_letter_grade(get_average(alice))

It looks like your print statement is inside the previous get_letter_grade function. If you remove the spaces before print, it should run it separately.

Hey guys. Can anyone tell me what version of Python this is? I honestly am wondering this is not a quiz.
