regarding get_class_average
When someone has a moment may I get a bit of guidance? I'm sure there's something foolish Im doing here but Im have difficulty identifying what it is. Huge thanks in advance

Receiving the following error:
"Oops, try again. get_class_average([alice]) resulted in an error: 'tuple' object has no attribute 'append'

From my understanding this should return the average of all students' scores combined.

``````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 = sum(numbers)
total = float(total)
total = float(total) / len(numbers)

def get_average(student):
homework = average(student["homework"])
quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
tests = average(student["tests"])
return 0.1 * average(student["homework"]) + 0.3 *  average(student["quizzes"]) + 0.6 * average(student["tests"])

if score >= 90:
return "A"
elif score >= 80:
return "B"
elif score >= 70:
return "C"
elif score >= 60:
return 'D'
else:
return "F"

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

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

students = [lloyd,alice,tyler]
print get_class_average(students)"

To define a list we use square brackets `[]`.
The parentheses `()` allow to define a tuple which is another type of data structure.
