# Handling multiple ValueError exceptions

Hi, I loved the idea of managing user errors and it has opened up new thinking for me. So I experimented with the split check script a little more by adding an exception to the total amount if it is less than 1. I'm pasting the code here. I'm not sure what's wrong, but the second print argument"Please enter a valid number" is not getting printed. Please help where I'm going wrong.

import math def split_check(total, number_of_people): if number_of_people <= 1: raise ValueError("More than one person is required to split the check") cost_per_person = math.ceil(total / number_of_people) if total <= 1: raise ValueError("Need a valid positive amount to continue") return cost_per_person try: total_amount = float(input("Enter the total amount: ")) total_people = int(input("Enter the total number of people: ")) amount_due = split_check(total_amount, total_people)

except ValueError as err2: print("({})".format(err2))

except ValueError as err: print("({})".format(err)) print("Please enter a valid number")

else: print("Total amount to be paid by each person is:", amount_due)

Please tell me what I'm doing wrong.

Also, sorry I don't know how to Markdown this!

Hi there!

I fiddled around with it a bit, see below! If there's anything, be sure to give a shout :)

You can use the ``` before and after your code to mark it as code. You can check the markup cheatsheet if you click on the 'Markdown Cheatsheet' when typing your comment or message beneath the typing area itself.

```import math

def split_check(total, number_of_people):
if number_of_people <= 1:
raise ValueError("More than one person is required to split the check")
if total <= 1:
raise ValueError("Please enter an amount larger than 1")
return math.ceil(total / number_of_people)

try:
total_amount = float(input("Enter the total amount: "))
total_people = int(input("Enter the total number of people: "))
amount_due = split_check(total_amount, total_people)

except ValueError as err:
print("({})".format(err))

else:
print("Total amount to be paid by each person is: {}\$ ".format(amount_due))
```

PLUS
```import math

def split_check(total, number_of_people):
if number_of_people <= 1 or total <= 1:
raise ValueError("More than one person is required to split the check")

if total <= 1:
raise ValueError("Please enter an amount larger than 1")
return math.ceil(total / number_of_people)

try:
total_amount = float(input("Enter the total amount: "))
total_people = int(input("Enter the total number of people: "))
amount_due = split_check(total_amount, total_people)

except ValueError as err:
