Sending a Letter: Returning wrong grade

error message: "get_letter_grade(100) returned 'C' instead of 'A'"


Yet, I have a score >= 90 returning A.


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]
}

# Add your function below!
def average(numbers):
    total = sum(numbers)
    total = float(total)
    average = total/len(numbers)
    return average
    
def get_average(student):
    homework = average(student["homework"])
    quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
    tests = average(student["tests"])
    grade = 0.1 * homework + 0.3 * quizzes + .6 * tests
    return grade
    
def get_letter_grade(score):
    score = get_average(student)
    if score >= 90.0:
        return "A"
    elif score >= 80.0:
        return "B"
    elif score >= 70.0:
        return "C"
    elif score >= 60.0:
        return "D"
    else:
        return "F"
    
print get_letter_grade(get_average(lloyd))

Thoughts?

Your function discards the argument given to it (read your function)

I see. I didn't realize that score=get_average(student) wasn't necessary. Took that out and it works fine.

Thanks!
