My code doesn't work

The output result is different from the video's i check my code again and again but I still couldn't find the problem.

My code (click "check_please.py" to open the code that i am asking): https://w.trhou.se/rxur115imd


What is the total? 20
How many people? 0
Oh no! That's not a valid value. Try again...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "check_please.py", line 12, in <module>
amount_due = split_check(total_due, number_of_people)
File "check_please.py", line 6, in split_check
raise ValueError("More than 1 person is required to split the check")
ValueError: More than 1 person is required to split the check

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "check_please.py", line 16, in <module>
NameError: name 'err' is not defined

Hi Mark, this is the clue: NameError: name 'err' is not defined, you forgot to add as err after the exception's name.
