# Part of the Whole average not returning correctly

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

I am not sure why the error message is showing me get_class_average([alice, lloyd]). Why are alice and lloyd appearing together, and what happened to Tyler? Is Tyler missing from my average? Where did I go wrong that it is calculating alice and lloyd together? Code below. Thanks.

``````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]

}
#class_list = [lloyd, alice, tyler]

results.append(get_average(student))

This error indicates an improperly indented return statement.

Thank you! That's all it needed--I forgot to un-indent the return.
