How is Everybody Doing? - print syntax error


#1



It gives me :
File "python", line 52
print get_class_average(students)
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

I know I'm probably missing something obvious here, but I can't figure out what's wrong with the syntax


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!
students = [lloyd, alice, tyler]
def average(numbers):
    total = float(sum(numbers))
    return total/len(numbers)
    
def get_average(student):
    homework = average(student["homework"])
    quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
    tests = average(student["tests"])
    return (0.10*homework) + (0.30*quizzes) + (0.60*tests)

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"

print get_letter_grade(get_average(lloyd))

def get_class_average(students):
    results = []
    for student in students:
        results.append(get_average(student))
    return (average(results)

print get_class_average(students)
print get_letter_grade(get_class_average(students))

Hi @maximelbray ,

A SyntaxError at the beginning of a line is often a clue that something is wrong in the previous line of code.

Look above this line for the error ...

print get_class_average(students)

#3

Your error is in your return statement for the function get_class_average()
You have two open parenthesis, (, and one closing one, ).
@appylpye beat me to it. :slight_smile:
