Just Weight in and See Help?


#1



Hey all! Unfortunately, I am stuck here at this little bit... I think that I have everything right but I'm unsure where I'm making a mistake.

This is the error message that I always end up getting:

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

And here's my code:

    "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)
    total = float(total)
    total = float(total) / float(len(numbers))
    return total

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

student["homework"]

Note the singular form that matches the parameter.

Thank you so much, this works well!
