Im sorry but its hard to help when you dont say what is not working and what you want to achieve.

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!
