Finally, print out the result of calling get_class_average with your students list. Your students should be [lloyd, alice, tyler].
Then, print the result of get_letter_grade for the class's average.

If you have a text editor handy or a sandbox with line numbers, copy your code and paste it in to get a bearing on the trace route shown above. This will help you follow the flow and examine the objects.

HInt: One object that is in error is the `students` list. They should not be strings, but identifiers.
