# Lesson 8: part of the whole, what am I doing wrong?

#1

The posts here helped me fix a couple issues, but I am still getting this error:

Oops, try again. get_class_average([alice]) should return a number

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]
}

def average(numbers):
total = sum(numbers)
total = float(total)

def get_average(student):
homework = average(student['homework'])
quizzes = average(student['quizzes'])
tests = average(student['tests'])
return (homework * .10 + quizzes * .3 + tests * .6)

if score >= 90.0:
return 'A'
elif score >= 80.0:
return 'B'
elif score >= 70.0:
return 'C'
elif score >= 60.0:
return 'D'
else:
return 'F';

def get_class_average(students):
results = []
for student in students:
x = get_average(student)
results.append(x)
y = (results)
return y``````

What am I doing wrong?

This line should not be inside the loop.

Thank You!

I actually kept digging and just figured that out from another post. I was coming back here to delete this one. Such a simple, easy thing and it's been giving me a headache for a few hours now.
