Python Question

I am at CodeAcademy at Lesson 9 ("How is everybody doing?")

My error message is the following:

`Traceback (most recent call last):`

File "python", line 60, in <module>

File "python", line 52, in get_class_average

File "python", line 28, in get_average

TypeError: string indices must be integers, not str

I don't know what to do, I searched for solutions already, they suggested me to use the variable

`q`

`# creating students`

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]

}

# Add your function below!

return float(total)/ len(numbers)

for student in students:

Answer Source

In `get_class_average`

you call `get_average`

with the objects in the `students`

list. However, these objects are strings. Instead, you probably want the variables you defined before. So replace the line

```
students = ["lloyd", "alice", "tyler"]
```

with

```
students = [lloyd, alice, tyler]
```
