Can someone tell me what is wrong with my code? I keep getting the error message Oops, try again. get_class_average([alice, lloyd]) returned 91.15 instead of 85.85 as expected. Why is it ignoring tyler?

``````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 = [alice, lloyd, tyler]

def average(numbers):
total = float(sum(numbers))
def get_average(student):
homework = average(student["homework"])
quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
tests = average(student["tests"])
return (.1 * homework) + (.3 * quizzes) + (.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)``````

`return` terminates a function.whenever a `return` occurs function will end at that moment.
so your `return` statement shouldn't be inside `for` loop

Ah okay. Makes sense. Thanks!

``         results.append(get_average(student))(take care of the indenten bolck)``
