Part of the Whole - Wrong average


#1



https://www.codecademy.com/en/courses/python-beginner-en-qzsCL/1/4?curriculum_id=4f89dab3d788890003000096


the following error message appears: get_class_average([alice]) returned 83.8666666667 instead of 91.15 as expected


It should not get this result.
I would be eternally grateful if anyone could help, please.


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 = float(sum(numbers))
    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
    
results = []

group = [lloyd, alice, tyler]

for student in group:
    results.append(get_average(student))
    
def get_class_average(students):
    return average(results)

This should be inside the function so it resets with each call.

This is supposed to be named, students.

This should be inside the function.
