# Difference in average

#1

The expected average is 83.666667 and my code gives the answer as 84.08333

``````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(dictionary):
homework= average(dictionary["homework"])
quizzes= average(dictionary["quizzes"])
tests= average(dictionary["tests"])
return 0.1 * homework + 0.3 * quizzes + 0.6 * tests

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([lloyd,alice,lloyd])
