Oops, try again. get_letter_grade(79) returned 'B' instead of 'C' as expected.

Guys , I really need your help here . I can't see where I made a mistake in this code . Thanks


lloyd = {
    "name": "Lloyd",

# Add your function below!

    n = total / len(numbers)

    quizzes = average(student["quizzes"])
    tests = average(student["tests"])
    return 0.1*homework+ 0.3*quizzes+0.6*tests
    
def get_letter_grade(score):
    if score >= 90:
        return "A"
    elif score >= 70 :
        return "B"
    elif score >=60 :
        return "C"
    else :
        return "F"

print get_letter_grade(get_average(lloyd))

What part of your code decides if it's a C or B?
Judging by the error message, this probably has something to do with that, don't you think?

I figured out my mistake just few minutes before you replied to my topic. But thanks a lot . I hope I will be able to help you too one day


#4

this is my code but its not working
def get_letter_grade(score):
if score >= 90:
return "A"
elif score >= 80:
return "B"
elif score >= 70:
return "C"
elif score >= 60:
return "D"
else:
return "F"
print get_letter_grade(get_average(lloyd))

it says this
Oops, try again. Your code looks a bit off, see the console window for the error message!

Hi alexanderweaver ! I think that the error can be related to the intendantation.
Your code should be like this :
def get_letter_grade(score):
if score >= 90:
return "A"
elif score >= 80:
return "B"
elif score >= 70:
return "C"
elif score >= 60:
return "D"
else:
return "F"
print get_letter_grade(get_average(lloyd))

Also have you defined get_average earlier in the same exercice ?
