8. Part of the Whole


#1

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]
}

# Add your function below!
def average(numbers): 
    total = sum(numbers)
    total = float(total)
    total /= len(numbers)
    return total    
def get_average(student):
    homework = average(student["homework"]) * 0.1
    quizzes = average(student["quizzes"]) * 0.3
    tests = average(student["tests"]) * 0.6
    return homework + quizzes + 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"

print get_letter_grade(get_average(lloyd))

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

Error:
File "python", line 51
SyntaxError: 'return' outside function

Why does it keep saying this?

@systempro96292,
Indentation is important in Python

Please re-edit your Post

  • leave one blank-line above of your code
  • select your code in the Post
  • then =click= on the </>-symbol-of-this-editor

Your code will then be in a pre-code state
and you will be able to make/present the proper indentations.

#3

Take a look at the last line of your code, the indention of your return indeed shows it is outside the function


#4

Indent the return function to align with the others.
