    hi! `get_class_average()` takes a list of students, not a list of strings. Use get_class_average([alice]) Read More

    First a little test: >>> def av(L): ... return float(sum(L))/len(L) ... >>> 0.1 * av([100, 92, 98, 100]) + 0.3 * av([82, 83, 91]) + 0.6 *av([89, 97]) 91.14999999999999 This shows that 91.15 is the correct answer.

hi! get_class_average() takes a list of students, not a list of strings. Use

get_class_average([alice])

still there is one error.

"Oops, try again. get_class_average([alice]) returned 85.6875 instead of 91.15 as expected"

First a little test:

>>> def av(L):
...  return float(sum(L))/len(L)
... 
>>> 0.1 * av([100, 92, 98, 100]) + 0.3 * av([82, 83, 91]) + 0.6 *av([89, 97])
91.14999999999999

This shows that 91.15 is the correct answer.

Now running your code gives 91.15 (replace the last statement with print(get_class_average([alice]))), so there is no error. The error must be in the code that prints Oops try again etc.
