- The base rate for the room depends on the room type. Standard = 84.50, Deluxe = 104.50, and Suite = 154.50.

- If the number of guests is greater than 2, a $10.00 charge is imposed on each additional guest per night.

- An additional rollaway bed costs $5.00 per night.

- Declare constants as necessary to store the various rates.

- Using the rules described in the previous list, write the code to calculate the cost of the hotel room and display the output. Format all of the output. Make the Calculate button the accept button.

- The Clear button should clear all of the output values, set the arrival and checkout date to the current date, and set the room type to standard. Remove the check from the Additional Rollaway Bed check box and, finally, set the default number of guests to 2.

Perfect Competition in the Market for Hotel Rooms

Suppose perfect competition prevails in the market for hotel rooms. The current market equilibrium price of a standard hotel room is $100 per night. Show that the current market equilibrium is efficient, assuming that both the marginal cost incurred by sellers and the marginal benefit perceived by buyers reflect all costs and benefits associated with production and use of hotel rooms. Suppose a $10 per night tax is levied on hotel occupancy. Show how this tax will prevent the market from achieving efficient output. Show the loss in net benefits from hotel use resulting from the tax. Create a graph on a spreadsheet program (such as MS Excel), copy and paste it into a MS Word document, write your answer in the MS Word document.
