get_average returned 82.375 instead of 91.15 for alice. What am I doing wrong?


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 = sum(numbers)
    total = float(total)
    return total / len(numbers)
    
def get_average(student):
    homework = average(student["homework"])
    quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
    tests = average(student["tests"])
    return .01 * homework + 0.3 * quizzes + 0.6 * tests

Hi, @webjumper01049 ,

Check, carefully, all the code that is needed to compute the result, including the numbers in this line ...

return .01 * homework + 0.3 * quizzes + 0.6 * tests

#3

Even I am getting the same error. What is going wrong here? Please help.

OK just figured it out. It is 0.1 * homework and not 0.01.


#5

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