# Add your function below!
# Add your function below
def average(numbers):
  total = sum(numbers)
  total = float(total)
  total = total/len(numbers)
  return total

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

get_average(alice)
91.14999999999999

Thatโ€™s the result we get from your code.

Perhaps try refreshing the page and run it again.
