Part of the Whole Debugging Problems

#1

I have been having a ton of trouble with this exercise (?) I would love for someone to take a look at it.

It gives me this error
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)
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
if score >= 90.0:
return "A"
elif score >= 80.0:
return "B"
elif score >= 70.0:
return "C"
elif score >= 60.0:
return "D"
else:
return "F"
def get_class_average(students):
results = []
for student in students:
results.append(get_average(student))
return average(results)``````

Hello

Make sure that your return average(results) is indented correctly.
It must be in line with for above it.

Let me know if that helps.

#3

I'm not completely sure how that affects the program from what it told me, but that fixed it.

#4

Python uses indentations to code into blocks.

Whenever you create a block, a group of code that works together, you need whitespace(indentations) to tell python that the following lines are all part of the block.

Indentation is important because you can't write a loop or a function without it.
Ask yourself which lines of code relate to one another in the above lesson.
