Just Weight And See, where is the error?

#1

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

It doesn't work but everything seems okay

``````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)

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.
