Firstly , my code runs just fine, but No matter what i change
Alice's tests and homework to, she always gets an A.
I expected her grade to change. Code below.

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": [10.0, 92.0, 98.0, 100.0],
    "quizzes": [82.0, 83.0, 91.0],
    "tests": [10.0, 10.0]
}
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)
    return total/len(numbers)
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) 
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(alice)

Look at Alice's grade, why does she always get an A

Hi the last instruction says..
Finally, test your function! Call your get_letter_grade function with the result of get_average(lloyd). Print the resulting letter grade. in your case you chose alice and you also change her grades, you should call it like that

print get_letter_grade(get_average(alice))

Because the argument score in the function get_letter_grade() is the average of the student. and if you run it you will reciece

print get_letter_grade(get_average(alice))
#Output
F

HOpe that could help you.
