# Alice error *should return a number*

#1

I cannot see what is wrong with my code I have run it outside the website and it performed fine. When I submit it I get the error,
Oops, try again. get_class_average([alice]) should return a number
What am I missing?

``````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)
total = total / len(numbers)

def get_average(student):
homework = average(student["homework"])
quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
tests = average(student["tests"])
weighted = (homework*.1)+(quizzes*.3)+(tests*.6)
return weighted

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 item in students:
results.append(get_average(item))
print average(results)
get_class_average(students)``````

you need to `return average(results)`, not print

Oh geez that was so simple, Thank you!
