I tried to do the best code possible for what the exercise ask for but even the screen returns non i get:
Oops, try again. get_average(alice) raised the following error: unsupported operand type(s) for *: 'function' and 'float'

i would like to see if anyone can help to get the info i need. I know i can copy and paste an answer from the forum but i would like for someone to help in getting the most efficient code

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 average

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

In your function here you are returning the function itself. You need to return the total that you just calculated.
