Parts of the whole

The error I'm receiving is "get_class_average([alice]) should return a number"

I can't figure out why it would specifically tag her as the coding seems identical to Lloyd's - so presumably that one would throw the error first.

Thanks for the 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],

}

def average(numbers):
total = sum(numbers)
total = float(total)
result = total / len(numbers)
return result

def get_average(student):

0.3 * average(student["quizzes"]) + 0.6 * average(student["tests"])
return result

return "A"
elif score >= 80:
return "B"

return "C"
elif score >= 60:

print get_average(lloyd)

students = [lloyd, alice, tyler]

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

Wthin your get_class_average method your return statement does not return the average of the results and is incorrectly indented.

Got it now, thank you Alan
