My solution...

Hi guys,

I made an attempt at this video and my solution works but it is slightly different from the video:

TICKET_PRICE = 10

tickets_remaining = 100

# Out how many tickets are remaining using the tickets_remaining variable

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

# Gather the user's name and assign it to a new variable

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

# Prompt the user by name and ask how many tickets they would like

print("Hi there, {} ".format(customer_name))
ticket_request = input("How many tickets would you like?  ")
ticket_request = int(ticket_request)

# Calculate the price (number of tickets multiplied by the price) and assign it to a variable

order_cost = ticket_request * TICKET_PRICE

# Output the price to the screen

print(order_cost)

Does this make my solution? incorrect?

Many thanks

Doesn't the task ask for the program to continue selling tickets until the supply runs out? If so, this code has no loop and will not meet that objective.
