every time I run it and say a number over 100 it sais there are 100 tickets remaining. ???? TICKET_PRICE = 10

tickets_remaining = 100

while tickets_remaining >=1:

print("There are {} tickets remaining.".format(tickets_remaining)) name =input("What is your name? ") num_tickets =input("How many tickeets would you like, {}? ".format(name)) try: num_tickets = int(num_tickets) if num_tickets > tickets_remaining: raise ValueError("There are only {} tickets remaining".format(tickets_remaining)) except ValueError as err: print("Oh no, we ran into an issue. {}. Please try again.".format(err)) else: amount_due = num_tickets * TICKET_PRICE 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("Thanks anyways, {}!".format(name))

print("Sorry the tickets are all sold out!!! ;(")

Code formatting is always a good idea but crucial for Python, where indentation is everything. Use the instructions for code formatting in the Markdown Cheatsheet pop-up below the "Add an Answer" area. :arrow_heading_down:
Or watch this video on code formatting.

Do you still need help if so I could give you some. :)

Congratulations on resolving your issue. :+1:

For the benefit of other students, you could describe what it took to fix it. And remember to edit the code above to format it so the indenting can be seen!

Good job Caleb :)
