# Wrong average on "part of the whole"

#1

I get the error
"Oops, try again. get_class_average([alice, lloyd]) returned 91.15 instead of 85.85 as expected"

I don't know why it gets the wrong average and why it won't run through the "tyler" dictionary for the "tyler" get_average(student)

``````tyler = {
"name": "Tyler",
"homework": [0.0, 87.0, 75.0, 22.0],
"quizzes": [0.0, 75.0, 78.0],
"tests": [100.0, 100.0]
}
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]
}

def average(numbers):
total= sum(numbers)
total= float(total)
total/=len(numbers)

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

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

def get_class_average(students):
results= []
for student in students:
results.append(get_average(student))
return average(results)``````

Be sure this line has the same indent as `for` so it is not in the loop.
