I am very confused about what I am doing wrong.

The first three lines of the `get_average`

function are boolean expressions when they should be assignment statements.

`homework = average( ... )`

There are a lot of parens that are not needed. In fact none of them are except in the function calls.

Commas are only used to separate items in a reference object, (list, tuple, set, dictionary) or a parameter list.
