line 26, get_average, why do you have `alice`

as function parameter? Use `student`

as function parameter

```
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!
def average(numbers):
total = total + sum(numbers)
total = float(total)/len(numbers)
return total
def get_average(student):
homework = average(student["homework"])
quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
tests = average(student["tests"])
return 0.1*homework + 0.3 * quizzed + 0.6 * tests
```

this is the code...

here:

`total = total + sum(numbers)`

you can just store the sum of numbers in total? Why `total +`

?
