Python Question

I need to find the average of 5 assignments = two inputs. I'm getting a result, but its no correct. Here is what I have:

`def main():`

# list of grades

x = []

# count of students

n = 5

# fill list with grades from console input

# using pythonic generator

x = [int(input('Please enter the grade you got on assignment {}: '.format(i+1))) for i in range(n)]

midTermGrade = int(input('Please enter the grade you got on you Mid-Term: '))

finalGrade = int(input('Please enter the grade you got on you Final: '))

average_assignment_grade = sum(x) + midTermGrade + finalGrade / 7

print('Avg grade is ', average_assignment_grade)

main()

As you can see here, the math is wrong, the average suppose to be around 28, not 114

Answer

There is a problem with order of operations. You need to change:

```
average_assignment_grade = sum(x) + midTermGrade + finalGrade / 7
```

to:

```
average_assignment_grade = (sum(x) + midTermGrade + finalGrade) / 7
```
