Part of the Whole, getting wrong result

#1

Keep getting this error message, but I havent changed any code from pervious lessons and it has always worked, can't work out why I'm getting the wrong result this time.
Oops, try again. get_class_average([alice, lloyd]) returned 91.15 instead of 85.85 as expected

Obviously i was expecting the calculation to be correct.

``````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'])

return 0.1 * homework + 0.3 * quizzes + 0.6 * tests

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))

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

a function ends the moment a return keyword is reached

if a return keyword is reached in a loop, the loop will break
