A.) Multiply each occupancy rate by 200 to get the hypothetical room occupancy. Create the revenue data points that compare the price with the revenue, R, which is equal to price times the room occupancy

B.) Use the calculator to create an equation that models the revenue, R, as a function of the price per day, x.

C.) Use maximization techniques to find the price that these hotels should charge to maximize the daily revenue
