8/9 get_clss_average([alice]) returned 80.55 instead of 91.15 (after adjusting my code to codes from forum)


#1

Okay, so I browsed the forum and adjusted my code to what worked for other. I indented the last line "return" and I still get the error message get_class_average([alice]) returned 80.55 instead of 91.15

I also restarted my browser.

If a loop exits its enclosing function each iteration, then it won't ever perform a second iteration and therefore isn't a loop at all

Thanks for your answer. I am a total beginner, can you explain to me in a different way?

I don't understand how my loop exits the function.

Thank you


#5

I got it! I moved this line of code students=[lloyd, alice, tyler] below return and it let me pass.


#6

That would be unreachable, you've already returned from the function
