How much to indent and when should I? Also, keep getting a syntax error on line 10.

TICKET_PRICE = 10

tickets_remaining = 100

while tickets_remaining >=1:

print("there are {} tickets remaining.".format(tickets_remaining))
user_name = input("what is your name?  ")
num_tickets= input("Hey {}, how many tickets do you want to buy?  ".format(user_name)
num_tickets = int(num_tickets)
amount_due = num_tickets * TICKET_PRICE
print("the total due is ${}") .format(amount_due))  
if should_proceed.lower() =="y":    
                       print("SOLD!")
                       tickets_remaining -= num_tickets
    else:
                       print("tickets go fast, {}.").format(user_name)

print("sorry the tickets are sold out.")

Hi I did it this way.. similar to what the instructor showed in the video lecture.

TICKET_PRICE = 10

tickets_remaining = 100  


while tickets_remaining >= 1:
    print("The number of tickets remaining: {}".format(tickets_remaining))
    user_name= input("Enter your name here:   ")
    try:
        number_of_tickets=int(input("Hi {}! How many tickets would you like  ".format(user_name)))
        if number_of_tickets > tickets_remaining:
            raise ValueError("Only {} tickets left. Try again".format(tickets_remaining))
    except ValueError as err:
        print("Oh no, That is not a valid value. Try again")
        print("{}".format(err))
    else:
        total_amount=(number_of_tickets*TICKET_PRICE)
        print("Your total is ${}".format(total_amount))
        answer=str.upper(input("Do you want to proceed ? (Y/N) "))
        if answer==("Y"):
            print("Purchase confirmed")
            tickets_remaining=tickets_remaining-number_of_tickets
        else:
            print("{}! Thankyou for visiting our site.".format(user_name))
print("Sorry all tickets are sold!")

I indent through using the tab button. On the Treehouse workspace it 2 spaces (shown in the bottom, left). I have just quickly mocked this up. Please follow the videos carefully, I believe you have missed things out. I hope this helps

TICKET_PRICE = 10

tickets_remaining = 100

while tickets_remaining >= 1:

  # Output how many tickets are remaining using the tickets_remaining variable
  print("There are {} tickets remaining.".format(tickets_remaining))

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

  # Prompt the user by name and ask how many tickets they would like
  num_tickets = input("Hey {}, how many tickets do you want to buy?  ".format(user_name))
  num_tickets = int(num_tickets)
  # Calculate the price (number of tickets multiplied by the price) and assign it to a variable
  amount_due = num_tickets * TICKET_PRICE
  # Output the price to the screen
  print("The total due is ${} ".format(amount_due))

  should_proceed = input("Do you want to proceed? Y/N ")

  if should_proceed.lower() == "y":
    print("SOLD!")
    tickets_remaining -= num_tickets
  else:
    print("tickets go fast, {}.".format(user_name))
else:
  print("sorry the tickets are sold out.")
