Part 8/9 "Part of the Whole"


#1



I am stuck on the Part of the Whole part 8/9.


The code is saying that it is returning 91.15 instead of 85.85. I have no idea what is going wrong since the code looks correct to me.


I need help.


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]
}

# Add your function below!
def average(n):
    total = sum(n)
    total = float(total)
    result= total/len(n)
    return result
    
def get_average(student):
    homework = average(student["homework"])
    quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
    tests = average(student["tests"])
    grade = 0.10*homework + 0.30*quizzes + 0.60*tests
    return grade
    
def get_letter_grade(score):
    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(students):
    results = []
    for student in students:
        results.append(get_average(student))
        return average(results)

Hi yous hould indent the retrun statement isnide teh for loop likr taht

.....
    for student in students:
        results.append(get_average(student))
    return average(results)

#3

That worked! Thank you so much for your help!


#4

but why does that work?


#5

Hi because the return statememt should be indent like the for loop (which is inside the getclass_average function)_

def get_class_average(students):
    #everything indent like that is inside the function get_class_average
    for student in students:
        #everything indent like that inside The for loop
