# 8. Part of the Whole, class list does not exist

#1

Below is my code for part 8. Part of the Whole section. The instruction says 03. For each student item in the class list, calculate get_average(student) and then call results.append() with that result. The class list doesn't seem to exist, so it should be for each student in students list.

I got the error message File "python", line 50 for student in students SyntaxError: invalid syntax so I cannot proceed. Is there any way around this?

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)

def get_average(student):
homework = average(student["homework"])
quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
tests = average(student["tests"])
return 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"

students = [lloyd, alice, tyler]

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

print get_class_average(students)

It will be obvious on a closer look...
