My script won't multiply two variables and I don't know why.

TICKET_PRICE = 10

tickets_remaining = 100  
#Tells how much there are tickets left to the user
print("There are {} tickets remaining.".format(tickets_remaining))

#Gather user name 
user_name = (input("Hi, what is your name?  "))

#How much tickets the user want to buy
tickets_number = (input("Hey {}, how much tickets do you want?  ".format(user_name)))
tickets_number = int()
#output tickets price for the user
ticket_total_price = tickets_number * TICKET_PRICE 

print("It'll cost you {}$".format(ticket_total_price))

Hey chaou youva, the error appears to be in this line

tickets_number = int()

This sets tickets_number to 0.

Did you mean to use

tickets_number = int(tickets_number)

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
