I get an error message sayin that lloyd's average is 85.55 when it expected 80.55, but then I printed get_average(lloyd) and it returned the correct average


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]

results = []

# Add your function below!
def average (numbers):
    total = sum(numbers)
    total = float(total)
    total = total/ len(numbers)
    return total

def get_average(student):
    homework = average(student['homework'])
    quizzes = average(student['quizzes'])
    tests = average(student['tests'])
    grade = (homework*0.1)+(quizzes*0.3)+(tests*0.6)
    return grade    
    
def get_letter_grade(score):
    if score >= 90:
        return 'A'
    if score >= 80:
        return 'B'
    if score >= 70:
        return 'C'
    if score >= 60:
        return 'D'
    else:
        return 'F'

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

In order to ensure that this variable is reset with each run of the function, it should be inside the function that uses it.

def get_class_average(students):
    results = []
    # ...
