I get the error message: "Oops, try again. get_average(alice) raised the following error: 'dict' object is not callable"

I understand the error message, but I have now struggled all day with this and I can't seem to locate where I am wrong. I would appreciate a hint. Thank you

``````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]

}

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

def get_average(student):

return sum([hw * 0.1] + [quiz * 0.3] + [test * 0.6])``````

Hint

You're only doing lloyd but not really as well.
Also, you seem to ditch your `average` function. It could be useful in your `get_average` function.
Perhaps the instructions may be useful to you:

02. Make a variable homework that stores the `average()` of `student["homework"]`.
03. Repeat step 2 for "quizzes" and "tests".

I forgot to reply. Your help was very appreciated, I managed to figure it out, thanks!

add this to your code... and also take care of naming convention that is most important.

as i used "homework" instead of just "hw" and so on.. you can use anything ...

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