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.
