11. Student become the teacher

list indices must be integers, not str.
This is the error message thrown when i try to run my code

``````Replace this line with your code.
lloyd = {
"name": "Lloyd",
"homework": [90.0, 97.0, 75.0, 92.0],

Hi, i think the problem is because, you parse a list to function get_average, not index of the list.

``get_class_average_specific=get_average(students)``

change to this:

``get_class_average_specific =get_average(n)``

variable n is the index of students list

then, create a list like this outside the function.

``students = [lloyd, alice, tyler]``

make sure the list content is same as the dictionary name.
finally call the function.

``print get_class_average(students)``

Hope this help.
