Add your function below!

def average(numbers):
total=sum(numbers)
#total=float(total)
float(total)/len(numbers)
return total

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

Oops, try again. get_average(alice) returned 227.4 instead of the expected 91.15


Replace this line with your code.

Remove commenting and everything will be working! :slight_smile:

update**
hint -
float(total)/len(numbers)

still the same error after removal of comment

Hi there,
The first, I see one error

Should be: total = float(total) / len(numbers)

We must have one variable contain the result.

The second, maybe the function average (error) effective to function get_average. So if function average resolved. It's OK.

Have fun!
