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]
}

# Add your function below!
def average(numbers):
    total = sum(numbers)
    total = float(total)
    return total / len(numbers)

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)

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))

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?


#3

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.

Very helpful. Thank you, @mtf
