Python Python Basics All Together Now Handle Exceptions

multiple except's in a try block

So there are two ValueError we saw in this video and 'as' references to the ValueError that was raised by requesting for more tickets than we offer . But when I put the original ValueError that we tried ; putting string in ticket request ,it says the line of the 'except ' but in the place of {} comes the statement 'invalid literal for int() with base 10' then carry on with the rest of print's line. How do i make this {}'s line not show up for ValueError that occurred by putting string in number of tickets? Can I put another 'except' in the try block for the original ValueError than just merging it with the second ValueError.

You could nest another try-except block inside your try-except block, or you could add an if statement to your except block to check if err.args[0] contains 'invalid literal' without needing to nest exceptions.
