Invalid Syntax on Gather information step?

I'm getting an invalid syntax error on the name = var and I'm not sure why name = input("what is your name? ")

Moving it to the top of the page just produces a syntax error in the requested_tickets var.

TICKET_PRICE = 10

tickets_remaining = 100  


print("There are {} tickets remaining.".format(tickets_remaining)

name = input("what is your name? ")      

requested_tickets = input("how many tickets do you need? ")
requested_tickets = int(requested_tickets)


amount_due = requested_tickets * TICKET_PRICE
print("Your total for %s tickets is $%s " % (requested_tickets, amount_due))

1 Answer

The line print("There are {} tickets remaining.".format(tickets_remaining) has two ( and one ). Try adding another ) at the end of the line.
