# Student Becomes the Teacher - Sending a Letter

#1

Program sends this error message: "Oops, try again. get_letter_grade(100) returned 'C' instead of 'A' as expected."

I expected the program to return "A" instead of "C"

``````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 = float(sum(numbers))
result = total/(len(numbers))
return result

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

score = get_average(student)
if score >= 90:
return "A"
elif score >= 80:
return "B"
elif score >= 70:
return "C"
elif score >= 60:
return "D"
else:
return "F"

Hi, @gigasurfer31751 ,

The `get_letter_grade` function should use the value of `score` that is passed to it when it is called. This line should be removed from the function, because it overwrites that value ...

``score = get_average(student)``

got it thanks for the help it works now
