# 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.

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]
}

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

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