Part of the whole : get_class_average([alice, lloyd]) returned 91.15 instead of 85.85 as expected

Dudes.

Error is in the title.

I know this code is working. The previous steps were validated without errors.

I've begun with

def get_class_average(students):
    """return class average"""
    results = []
    for student in students:
        results.append(get_average(student))
        return average(results) 

But as I had the same error, I decomposed it.

Now my code looks like this : 

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):
    """returns the average of a list of number"""
    total = sum(numbers)
    total = float(total)
    total = total/len(numbers)
    return total
    
def get_average(student):
    """get average"""
    homework = average(student['homework'])
    quizzes = average(student['quizzes'])
    tests = average(student['tests'])
    total = homework * 0.1 + quizzes * 0.3 + tests * 0.6
    return total
    
def get_letter_grade(score):
    """return letter grade"""
    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):
    """return class average"""
    results = []
    for student in students:
        c = get_average(student)
        results.append(c)
        return average(results)

a function ends the moment a return keyword is reached, in your get_class_average function this currently happens in the first iteration of the loop, change the indent of return so the whole for loop can run

ho.

Yeah. That did the trick.

Thank you dear stranger.
