Part of the Whole {I AM CONFUSED!}


#1

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) / len(numbers)
return total

def get_average(student):
homework = average(student["homework"])
quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
tests = average(student["tests"])
weight = homework * .1 + quizzes * .3 + tests * .6
return weight

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"
get_letter_grade(lloyd)

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

It says:
"Oops, try again. get_class_average([alice]) returned 83.8666666667 instead of 91.15 as expected"

Thanks for help!

Hi @whoray,

This statement should be outside the get_class_average function ...

students = [lloyd, alice, tyler]

Otherwise, it overwrites the students parameter, defeating its purpose, which is to enable any user of the get_class_average function, including Codecademy's submission correctness test (SCT), to pass any list of student dictionaries to the function.

Thanks a lot! :slight_smile:
