syntax error but my variable is written the same

I keep getting a syntax error for "amount_due = numb_ticket * TICKET_PRICE". It shows up as an invalid syntax. Not sure why when its written the same on the video.

What's the full code block? Is there a traceback given to your SyntaxError?

Check if you have an unmatched parentheses or something like that.

Hi! In the video, it looks like he has the variable named num_tickets and you have in your code snippet numb_tickets with an extra "b". That could be your issue :)
