Use this:

length = len(student_gpas)

You can assign it to a variable and find the len all in one line.

You're getting an error because of two things.

1) You need to find the length of the list and assign it to a variable. While what you did is correct to get the length you are suppose to assign that answer to a variable called length. Try again and see if you can do it.

2). You printed the answer out, you're only suppose to assign a variable not print it :).
