I don't understand why I get the following error message:

Oops, try again. get_average(alice) raised the following error: list indices must be integers, not str

This is my 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):
sum(numbers)
total = sum(numbers)
total = float(total)
total = total / len(numbers)

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

Can someone help me?

here:

``tests = average(students["tests"])``

you use `students`, but get_average calculates the average grade for a single student, not multiply students

Thank you very much

then i have some bad news for you, you will keep making mistakes. (okay, i shouldn't be to pessimistic, you will make less mistakes and less stupid mistakes, and you will get better at finding mistakes and fixing them )
