Try/except/else blocks have to have the same indentation. Basically what python thing its happening is you're putting your except block INSIDE of your try block.
You're also not returning a + b in your try block, instead you have it in your "else" block. So when your code runs, you won't return a + b unless your try block fails, and a ValueError is not being thrown. Check out what i have and see the difference in indentation from your code.
