# Oops, try again. One of the following is missing or broken when we tried to use it: alice, lloyd, tyler, students, get_class_average, get_letter_grade

I am not able to find the mistake or understand the error.

The error message says this:Oops, try again. One of the following is missing or broken when we tried to use it: alice, lloyd, tyler, students, get_class_average, get_letter_grade

``````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]
}

student=[lloyd,alice,tyler]

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

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

if score>=90:
return "A"
elif score>=80:
return "B"
elif score>=70:
return "C"
elif score>=60:
return "D"
else:
return "F"

def get_class_average(student):
result=[]
for students in student:
a=get_average(students)
result.append(a)
return average(result)
print result
print get_class_average(student)
x=get_class_average(student)

Problem solved :Changing the list name from student to students did the trick.Probably its a key word that they look for.Though i still didnt understand what the error meant.

This is the keys bits for you from the error (my bold):

One of the following is missing or broken when we tried to use it: alice, lloyd, tyler, students, get_class_average, get_letter_grade

As you say, they are looking for students but had it named student. So the error is trying to say that students was missing (as it couldn't find a students variable), only the error isn't tailored to your exact problem rather it is a catch all for any of the things it says going wrong.
