# Can someone point out my error in this code?

This is the part in the video where he asks to make an exception for the ValueError. I kind of Frankensteined this but it works well until the end, where it automatically prints "We're sorry! All the tickets have sold out!" even when that's not true.

```TICKET_PRICE = 10
tickets_remaining = 100

while tickets_remaining >= 1:
print("There are {} tickets remaining for sale.".format(tickets_remaining))
user_name = input("\nHello! What is your name?  ")

while True:
ticket_number = input("Hello {}! How many tickets would you like to purchase?  ".format(user_name))
# Expect a ValueError to happen and handle it appropriately.
try:
total_price = int(ticket_number) * TICKET_PRICE
break

except ValueError:
continue

proceed = input("Would you like to confirm your sale of {} tickets for \${}? Y/N  ".format(ticket_number, total_price))

if proceed.lower() == "y":
print("\nAwesome! Your tickets have been sold!\n")
tickets_remaining -= int(ticket_number)
break
#TODO: Gather and process CC information.
else:
print("\nNo problem! Let's try again.\n")
continue

print("We're sorry! All the tickets have sold out.")
```

```        proceed = input("Would you like to confirm your sale of {} tickets for \${}? Y/N  ".format(ticket_number, total_price))

if proceed.lower() == "y":
print("\nAwesome! Your tickets have been sold!\n")
tickets_remaining -= int(ticket_number)
break
```

When you use `break` here, you are breaking out of the while loop formed at `while tickets_remaining >= 1:`, so your program does not recheck the condition before continuing below the while loop. If you comment out or remove the `break` from this section, the while loop will continue to run and will check if `tickets_remaining >= 1`.

you need to put away break, and you don't need continue

Thanks for responding, I appreciate it! Follow up question: I enter continue there because I want it to loop back (is that the right term?) to the point where they enter the number of tickets. Don't I need to put a continue for that to happen?
