Oops, try again. get_average(alice) raised the following error: 'float' object is not iterable


It doesn't work but everything seems okay :confused:


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

Why do you have a sum() in your return statement when you are already adding things? sum() has a different syntax I believe and was not taught in this course.
