Oops, try again. get_class_average([alice]) returned 0.0 instead of 91.15 as expected


I am really stuck . i would appreciate any help.


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=float( sum(numbers)) 
     result=total/len(numbers)
     return result
def get_average(student):
    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):
    
    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):
    students=['lloyd','alice','tyler']
    results=[]
    x=0
    for each in students:
        get_average_student=x
        results.append(x)
        return average(results)

there is a minor mistake in the get_class_average function in which you have declared a variable with the name x to access each elements in the students list but while the running the for loop you have written each in place of x.
i hope this might be the problem.


#3

i think the code should be changed as below..returning after running of for loop and function call syntax ending with()
for each in students:
--- x=get_average_student()
---results.append(x)
return average(results)


#4

def get_class_average(students):
#students=['lloyd','alice','tyler']
results=[]
x=0
for each in students:
x= get_average(each)
results.append(x)
return average(results)

It was actuallly the student list i created that was extra and messed up the code!! Thank you guys
