Im not sure whats wrong with it but i keep getting this error message;

Oops, try again. get_class_average([alice]) resulted in an error: 'dict' object has no attribute 'append'

here is my code

``````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) / float(len(numbers))
def get_average(student):
homework = average(student["homework"])
quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
tests = average(student["tests"])
return sum((homework * 0.1, quizzes * 0.3, tests * 0.6))
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):
students = [lloyd, alice, tyler]
results = {}
for student in students:
results.append(get_average(student))
return average(results)``````

Have you read that error message? It says quite a lot!

#3

Dictionaries can be `dicts` sometimes, haha I make myself laugh sometimes.

#4

Students list should be before than function get_class_average(students)

#5

That makes no difference either way.

#6

the problem is here: results = {} which is an empty dictionary, not an empty list
should be: results = []
