# 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

#3

ho.

Yeah. That did the trick.

Thank you dear stranger.
