Hi, im having trouble with this exercise. Please help me, I'm ready to pull out my hair.. Here 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]
}

i keep getting the following error: get_average(alice) raised the following error: object of type 'float' has no len()

Add your function below!

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

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


Replace this line with your code.

This line,

Should look like this

total = total / len(numbers)

Because you are not trying to return the float after dividing the total's length.
