average(results)


#2

your average(results) is currently outside of the function while this is what your function should return?


#3

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

you need give a space in total / len

I tried this and the error was solved but now it is not calculating the class average correctly:

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]

Add your function below!

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

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

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)

better, you are nearly there.

There is only one problem, a function ends the moment a return keyword is reached, if this happens in a loop, the loop simply breaks

So currently your loop will only iterate once, place return outside the loop
