# Hello, new to python....my code returns 85.85 instead of 80.55...any help would be deeply appreciated

``````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)

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

if score>=90:
return 'A'
elif score >=80:
return 'B'
elif score>=70:
return 'C'
elif score>=60:
return 'D'
else:
return 'F'
results=[]
def get_class_average(students):

for student in students:
results.append(get_average(student))

return average(results)``````

Add code that prints out how it got that result. Compare to what it should do.

#3

how to do that? how to add the correct code??? there is no hint either

#4

``````a = 1
b = 1
print 'i am adding %s to %s' % (a, b)
c = a + b
print 'the result was %s' % c``````

You obtain the correct code by observing what your code does differently from what you want and removing that difference.
