Help me! Codecademy error with this code:
def getAverage(x):
h = sum(x['homework']) * .1
q = sum(x['quizzes']) * .3
t = sum(x['tests']) * .6
return h + q + t
(Just weight and see)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is this a fragment of code or whole code. You have a function but where is rest of the code?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you forgot to put the dot after x, e.g.x.['homework'](the dot means 'the method/element of something'.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you copied and pasted the code then the "t = sum" line looks misaligned from the lines above it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Shadowys Incorrect. the dot syntax is used to reference an object's methods, not used to access array elements. The syntax of this function is correct.
