# Part of the Whole - Alice Error (maximum recursion depth exceeded)

#1

Oops, try again. get_class_average([alice]) resulted in an error: maximum recursion depth exceeded

I'm stuck here. I've been over the code and I can't seem to find where this is originating from. Any help is appreciated.

``````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)

def get_average(student):
homework = average(student["homework"])
quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
tests = average(student["tests"])
weighted = homework*0.1, quizzes*0.3, tests*0.6
return sum(weighted)

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

students = (lloyd, alice, tyler)

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

This will still work as a tuple, but the instructions ask for a list. `[]`.

Something here does not look quite right. Your function is calling itself (recursion). What do you need to change?

Ah, I see (for both). The tuple was an oversight. Still learning that [] does not equal ().

I also figured out my issue w/ the second bit of code you commented on.
