Isnâ€™t my code basically the same?

Hi son9o,

This is your vatianceâ€™s function

```
def grades_variance(scores):
average = grades_average(scores)
variance = 0
for score in scores:
variance += ((average - score) ** 2.0)
variance = variance / float(len(scores)) #AND HERE IS YOUR PROBLEM.
return variance
```

Because, the sentence is into the â€śforâ€ť, only need erase this space.

Thanks for your reply, but I still canâ€™t see it.

There seems to be a â€śgotchyaâ€ť in the code. â€śScoresâ€ť is not defined or populated with anything. Here is how I did it after i figured that out.

```
grades = [100, 100, 90, 40, 80, 100, 85, 70, 90, 65, 90, 85, 50.5]
def print_grades(grades):
for grade in grades:
print grade
def grades_sum(grades):
total = 0
for grade in grades:
total += grade
return total
def grades_average(grades):
sum_of_grades = grades_sum(grades)
average = sum_of_grades / float(len(grades))
return average
def grades_variance(grades):
average = grades_average(grades)
variance = 0
for score in grades:
variance += (average - score)**2
result = variance / len(grades)
return result
print grades_variance(grades)
def grades_std_deviation(variance):
return variance ** 0.5
print grades_std_deviation(variance)
print print_grades(grades)
print grades_sum(grades)
print grades_average(grades)
print grades_variance(grades)
print grades_std_deviation(grades_variance(grades))
```
