The total due is given multiples of the same number. For ten tickets I received $10101010101010101010.


tickets_remaining = 100

Output how many tickets are remained use the tickers_remaining variable

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

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

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

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

num_tickets = input("How many tickets would you like, {}? ".format(name)) num_ticket = int(num_tickets)

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

amount_due = num_tickets * TICKET_PRICE

Output the price to the screen

print("The total due is ${}".format(amount_due))

What did I do wrong or what should I think of adding? I followed the instructor

You're confusing the string variable num_tickets (plural) with the numeric one num_ticket (singular), or you might have intended to use the same variable but have a typo:

num_ticket = int(num_tickets)         :point_left: this line converts the string response into a number
amount_due = num_tickets * TICKET_PRICE :point_left: but this line replicates the original string 10 times
