Branch and loop on tickets_remaining exercise

In the while loop, the codes still runs if the num_tickets is zero, is it supposed to run after we already specified it as >=1 ?

TICKET_PRICE = 10

tickets_remaining = 100

Run this code continuosly until we run out of tickets

while tickets_remaining >= 1:
# Output how many tickets are remaining using the tickets_remaining variable. print("There are {} tickets left".format(tickets_remaining))

# Gather the user's name and assign it to a new variable.
name = input("What is your name?  ")

# Prompt the user by name and ask how many tickets they would like.
number_of_tickets = int(input("Hey {}, how many tickets would you like?".format(name)))

# Calculate the price(number of tickets multiplied by the ticket_price) and assign it to variable
price = number_of_tickets * TICKET_PRICE 

# Output the price to the screen
print("The ticket costs ${}".format(price))

# Prompt user if they want to proceed Y/N?
should_proceed = input("Do you want to proceed? Y/N  ".format(name))
# if they want to proceed
if should_proceed.lower() == "y":
    # print out to the screen SOLD! to confirm purchase
    print("SOLD!")
    # and the decreament of the tickets remaining by the number of tickets purchased
    tickets_remaining -= number_of_tickets 
# Otherwise....
else:
    # Thank them by name
    print("Thank you {} for patronizing us".format(name))

Notify the user that tickets are sold out

print("Hey {} the tickets are sold out".format(name))
