# 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]
}

students = [lloyd, alice, 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 (0.10*homework) + (0.30*quizzes) + (0.60*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)

print 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)``

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.
