waiting for answers yes or not to buying tickets

TICKET_PRICE = 10

tickets_remaining = 100

Output how many tickets are remaining using the tickets_remanning variable

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

Gather the users name and assign it to the new variable

name = input("What's 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 to buy {}? ".format(name)) num_tickets = 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))

Here's a few hints:

  • use a different variable to store the answer so you can save "name" for the "thank you" message
  • test the answer in an "if" statement by comparing it with "Y"
  • print the "sold" message only if the test succeeds

Thank you
