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


#1



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]
}

# 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'
#get_letter_grade(get_average(lloyd))
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.
