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

def get_average(student):
homework = average(student["homework"])
quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
tests = average(student["tests"])

return 0.1 * average(student["homework"])
return 0.3 * average(student["quizzes"])
return 0.6 * average(student["tests"])``````

Multiple returns. Only the first one is returned. Study the example in the lesson notes that describes use of the continuation operator. This is one of the very few lessons where we get the chance to practice with it.

``````def get_average(student):
return average(student["homework"]) * 0.1 + \
average(student["quizzes"]) * 0.3 + \
average(student["tests"]) * 0.6``````

Thank you so much

The instructions ask you to place the averages in variables and then return the sum of the averages. You can use the continuation operator with the variables. The following code works for me.

def get_average(student):

``````   homework = average(student["homework"])
quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
tests = average(student["tests"])

return homework * 0.1 + \
quizzes * 0.3 + \
tests * 0.6``````
