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

I'm not sure what im doing wrong here, been reading other threads but still unable to find my errors.

``````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=0
sum(numbers)
total+=sum(numbers)
float(total)
results = float(total)/len(numbers)
return results

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:
return "A"
elif score >= 80:
return "B"
elif score >= 70:
return "C"
elif score >= 60:
return "D"
else:
return "F"
return get_average(lloyd)

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

A function ends the moment a `return` keyword is reached.

#3

what do you mean by return keyword is reached

#4

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

for example in my code above, once return get_average(student) is reached the function stops processing results.append(get_average(student)) and return average(results). Hence the last 2 lines of codes are not being run.
