# Part of the whole 8/9

hello,

im stuck in this error:

“get_class_average([alice, lloyd]) returned 91.15 instead of 85.85 as expected”

here is my code. thanks in advance!

``````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)
total = float(total) / len(numbers)

def get_average(student):
homework = average(student['homework'])
quizzes = average(student['quizzes'])
tests = average(student['tests'])

sum = (homework * .10) + (quizzes * .30 ) + (tests * .60)

return sum

if score >= 90:
return 'A'
elif score >= 80 and score <= 89:
return 'B'
elif score >= 70 and score <= 79:
return 'C'
elif score >= 60 and score <= 69:
return 'D'
else:
return 'F'

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

What happens during the first iteration of the `for` loop in your `get_class_average` function?

What is the final statement within that loop?

#3

actually, i found the culprit. the problem is the indentation of my return, i should align it with my for loop statement but i can’t figure out how it affect the results of average

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

#4

When would the `return` statement have executed when it was indented to its original degree? Was it part of the loop or was it outside it?

#5

it was part of the loop

#6

Yes, indeed, it was. During what iteration of the loop would it have executed, and what would be the consequence of that?
