8/9 Student becomes teacher - Help


#1

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]
}
student = [lloyd, alice, tyler]

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

def get_average(student):
homework = (sum(student["homework"])) / 4
quizzes = (sum(student["quizzes"])) /3
tests = (sum(student["tests"])) / 2
soma = (homework * 0.1) + (quizzes * 0.3) + (tests * 0.6)
return soma

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 class:
get_average(student)
results.append(get_average(student))

return total

print get_letter_grade(get_average(lloyd))

What is wrong here?
I need to do these steps:

  1. Set a function called (get_class_average) with an argument (students). you can expect (students) to be a list containing the three students.
  2. First, create an empty list called (results).
  3. For each item (student) in the list (class), calculate (get_average (student)) and then call (results.append ()) with this result.
  4. Finally, return the result of calling (average ()) with (results).

I wrote:

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

return total

The console response:

File "python", line 48
for student in class:
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Did you indent properly? And it seems you are returning nothing as I don't see a variable called total assigned/created in your get_class_average function.

Yes, I found the mistake, thanks
