9/9 Why do I get an error for printing the values?


#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]
}

students = [lloyd,alice,tyler]

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

def get_average(student):
homework = average(student["homework"])
quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
tests = average(student["tests"])
return 0.1 * homework + 0.3 * quizzes + 0.6 * 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"

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

print get_class_average(students)
print get_letter_grade(students)

Then I get an error from the website about not printing the grade for the class average.


#2

Your get_letter_grade function takes as a parameter score. And this is your function call:

get_letter_grade(students)

Do you see a problem? You have passed a list of students as a score.

You should print result of get_letter_grade with calculated average as a parameter:

print get_letter_grade(get_class_average(students))

#3

average= get_class_average(students)
print average
print get_letter_grade(average)

first, you should print the number of average, and then pass this number to [get_letter_grade] to get the letter grade to print it.

try and understand the code above, it's worked ^^.
