Part of the whole - 91.15 instead of 85.85

#1

it says it is producing the wrong number. i am not sure what is wrong with my code

Oops, try again. get_class_average([alice, lloyd]) returned 91.15 instead of 85.85 as expected

``````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)
average = total / len(numbers)
return average

# Add your function below!
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

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))#

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

a function ends the moment a return keyword is reached

If the return keyword is reached in the loop, the loop will break

thanks for the help.
