I want it to say YEAR 1 , Year 2 , month 1 month 2 but I kept getting errors like listed above


index=1
totalsumMonths=0
totalrainfallAmount=0

while index<=numYears:
numMonths=0
numMonths=float(input("Enter the number of months for recorded rainfall in year: ") )
while numMonths <= 0:
numMonths=float(input("Try Again- Enter the number of months for recorded rainfall in year: "))

totalsumMonths += numMonths


count=1
totalrainFall=0


## Asking for the rain fall amount for the month

while count<=numMonths:
rainfall=float(input("Enter the rainfall amount for month: "))
totalrainFall += rainfall
totalrainfallAmount += rainfall
count+=1


avgyearlyRain= totalrainFall/numMonths
print ("YEAR REPORT: ")
print (" Total rainfall: " , format (totalrainFall,".2f") , "inches")
print (" Number of months: " , format (numMonths,".2f") ,"months")
print (" Average rainfall: " , format (avgyearlyRain,".2f") ,"inches")

index +=1
