My code is not working

TICKET_PRICE = 10

tickets_remaining = 100

while tickets_remaining >= 1: if tickets_remaining == 1:

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


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


num_tickets = input("How many tickets 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))


    proceed = input("Would you like to buy these? [Y/N]")
    proceed = proceed.lower()
    if proceed == 'y':
            print("Sold!")
            tickets_remaining -= num_tickets
    else:
            print("Thank you anyways, {}".format(name))

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

Hello, you indented >> name = input("What is your name? ") that should not be indented. I ran your code and everything runs fine. I don't know if you have this in your >>while tickets_remaining >= 1: if tickets_remaining == 1: but if you do then I don't think you need it. I ran your code without that and everything seemed fine. Good luck!
