Wrong average on "part of the whole"


#1



https://www.codecademy.com/courses/python-beginner-en-qzsCL/1/4?curriculum_id=4f89dab3d788890003000096


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]
}


# Add your function below!
def average(numbers):
    total= sum(numbers)
    total= float(total)
    total/=len(numbers)
    return total
    

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
 

    
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"

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.
