Error message comes up saying Oops try again get_class_average([alice]) should return a number.

lloyd = {
"name": "Lloyd",
"homework": [90.0, 97.0, 75.0, 92.0],
"quizzes": [88.0, 40.0, 94.0],
"tests": [75.0, 90.0]
}

"name": "Alice",
"homework": [100.0, 92.0, 98.0, 100.0],
"quizzes": [82.0, 83.0, 91.0],
"tests": [89.0, 97.0]
}
tyler = {

}

Add your function below!

def average(numbers):
total = sum(numbers)
total = float(total)
return total / len(numbers)

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"

def get_class_average(students):
results = []
for student in students:
return results.append(get_average(student))
return average(results)

this is my code that works:

def get_class_average(students):
    results=[]
    for student in students:
        results.append(get_average(student))
    return average(results)

you’ve got two return statements in your get_class_average() function. you’re simply appending the result from get_average() to your list and exiting the function without returning a number. the second return statement (what you actually want) is dead code :smile:
