It's Okay to be Average


#1

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]
}
def average(numbers):
total = sum(numbers)
total = float(total) / numbers
total = float(total) / len(numbers)
return total

Error message: Oops, try again. average([3, 0]) resulted in an error: unsupported operand type(s) for /: 'float' and 'list'

For the average function, can someone explain to me what I did wrong? I don't really understand this part.

Thanks!

That line may be removed. The one that follows it is correct.
