# Return value is different from what should be

Oops, try again. get_class_average([alice, lloyd]) returned 80.55 instead of 85.85 as expected

``````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)
av = float(total) / len(numbers)
return av

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

if score >= 90:
return "A"
elif score >= 80:
return "B"
elif score >= 70:
return "C"
elif score >= 60:

else:

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

This line is not required,

And here you shouldn't be returning get_average to x,

but actually average with the parameter of the empty list results,

`return average(results)`
