7. The Variance


#1



https://www.codecademy.com/courses/python-intermediate-en-7mgOa/2/1?curriculum_id=4f89dab3d788890003000096

Help! My code keeps returning the error message:

File "python", line 25
print grades_variance(grades)
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

How can the print command be a syntax error? It's the exact same format I've been using for every print command I've used throughout the course.

My code:

grades = [100, 100, 90, 40, 80, 100, 85, 70, 90, 65, 90, 85, 50.5]

def print_grades(grades):
    for grade in grades:
        print grade

def grades_sum(grades):
    total = 0
    for grade in grades: 
        total += grade
    return total
    
def grades_average(grades):
    sum_of_grades = grades_sum(grades)
    average = sum_of_grades / float(len(grades))
    return average

def grades_variance(scores):
    average = grades_average(scores)
    variance = 0
    for score in scores:
        variance += ((average - score) ** 2)
    return variance / (len(scores)

print grades_variance(grades)

HI this line

return variance / (len(scores)

this part

(len(scores)

you forgot to close with )

Oops! Thank you so much!
