Part of a Whole Error


#1


Hi All, Im getting a small error while completed the Part of the whole exercise that I think has to do with incorrect appending or something.


https://www.codecademy.com/courses/python-beginner-en-qzsCL/1/4?curriculum_id=4f89dab3d788890003000096

I get this Error Message
Oops, try again. get_class_average([alice]) returned 80.55 instead of 91.15 as expected.

80.55 is the CORRECT average for Lloyd.

When I place alice's name first in my list. I get the error get_class_average([lloyd]) returned 91.15 instead of 80.55 as expected so I think the math is right but the order in which it is being brought in isn't.


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(numbers):
    total = float(sum(numbers))
    avg = total/len(numbers)
    return avg 
    
def get_average(student):
    homework = average((student)["homework"])
    quizzes = average((student)["quizzes"])
    tests = average((student)["tests"])
    weightavg = (homework * 0.1) + (quizzes * 0.3) + (tests * 0.6) 
    return weightavg
    
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"
 # print get_letter_grade(get_average(lloyd))
my_class = [lloyd, alice, tyler]

def get_class_average(students):
    results = []
    for student in my_class:
        get_average(student)
        results.append(get_average(student))
        return average(results)


#2

Too many brackets.

student['homework']

#3

Ohh yea haha. I actually only added those brackets because someone else whose code worked had them. I took them out an still get the same error.

Thanks though!!


#5

This line has too much indentation.


#6

Thanks guys!! You were both right. The error was with my incorrect indentation!!
