# 7. Sending a Letter

#1

Hi I'm getting a Oops, try again. get_letter_grade(68) returned 'F' instead of 'D' as expected. But its gives the result "B" in the window

``````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)
result = total / len(numbers)
return result

def get_average(student):
homework = average(student ["homework"])
homework = average(student ["quizzes"])
homework = average(student  ["tests"])

return 0.1 * average(student["homework"])+     0.3 * average(student["quizzes"])+    0.6 * average(student["tests"])

if score >= 90:
return "A"
elif score >= 80:
return "B"
elif score >= 70:
return "C"
elif score >= 69:
return "D"
else:
return "F"

You have a typo in this part

change 69 to 60 and you should be fine.

If I can suggest something, in this part

you are reffering to `average` function twice. First when you are assinging averages to homework and second in your return statement.

My part looks like that

``````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``````

In your code you can leave just the return and remove the rest, it also works.

Thanks for the help!
