It says that there is a problem with my else when I type in python letter_percent.py. What am I doing wrong?

It says that there is a problem with my else. Do you guys know what I am doing wrong? Her is my code:

user_string = input("Whats your word? ")
user_num = input("Whats your number? ")

try:
  our_num = int(user_num)
except:
  our_num = float(user_num)

if not '.' in user_num:
  print(user_string[our_num])
else:
  ratio = round(len(user_string)*our_num)
  print(user_string[ratio])

Elijah Eck, I edited your post to include formatting and syntax highlighting. Check out this post for info on how to do it.
