if score is >= 90:

SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Ha, the result of course, that I can go on and did a great job.

``````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) / len(numbers)

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

if score is >= 90:
return "A"
elif score is >= 80:
return "B"
elif score is >= 70:
return "C"
elif score is >= 60:
return "D"
else:
return "F"
print get_average(lloyd)
print get_average(alice)
print get_average(tyler)

I am stuck with this. I checked posts in the forum yesterday, I slept a night over it and re-checked today again. But can't find what's wrong. Unfortunately it seems I am already blind to this code. So, my hope is, that a pair of fresh eyes can find the error and help me. Thanks.

why do you use `is` keyword? `>=` means: is equal or greater then

I was just getting here to close the thread, because I got the same question in my head. But: Thanks for your help!
