The code doesn't work. I keep getting an error message- "Oops, try again. get_average(alice) raised the following error: unsupported operand type(s) for *: 'float' and 'function' "

Can someone please help me

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)
    avg = float(total)/len(numbers)
    return average

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

Hi @hgandhi2411 ,

In the average function definition, you have this ...

return average

Instead of returning the result, you returned a reference to the average function, itself.

As a consequence it appears that you are trying to multiply a function by a number here, in the get_average function ...

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

Thank you! I didn't notice that.
