Challenge Teacher 4/5: What if multiple teachers have the same amount of courses...


I was practicing in the workspace and realized that if I had multiple teachers with the same amount I would get only one listed in my case "Andrew Chalkey".

So I tried to find a solution here it is


What do you think?

That won't work. If your dictionary has an increasing amount of courses for each entry then all teachers will be included. For example try:

my_dict = {'Andrew Chalkley': ['jQuery Basics'], 'Kenneth Love': ['Python Basics', 'Python Collections'],'Teacher 3': ['Course 1', 'Course 2', 'Course 3']}

Here Andrew has one course, Kenneth two, and Teacher 3 has three. len(courses) is greater than max_count as we proceed through the dictionary so each teacher is appended.

You could go through the dictionary twice. Once to get the max count. Then a second time to append teachers that match the max count.
