I'm not seeing the error you are. I added TICKET_PRICE and put the assignment of num_tickets on a new line.

TICKET_PRICE = 9.99
users_name = input("What is your name? ") 
num_tickets = input("How many tickets do you want {}? ".format(users_name))

num_tickets = int (num_tickets)

total_price = TICKET_PRICE * num_tickets

print("Your price is {}".format(total_price))
