    Question How to put weight on each value

    I have a hotel with 130 suites.

    These 130 suites are divided into 8 categories based on their size and/or the number of guests occupancy. Following is the break down:

    Suite Name
    Queen Suite - 28 rooms for 1 pax occupancy
    King/Twin Suite - 65 rooms for 2 pax occupancy
    Premier Suite - 09 rooms for 3 pax occupancy
    Golden Suite - 10 rooms for 4 pax occupancy
    Royal Suite - 10 rooms for 5 pax occupancy
    Superior Deluxe - 08 rooms for 6 pax occupancy

    The rent on a daily basis is USD 22000

    How do we distribute the rent amongst the different categories of the room so as to arrive at the cost of each room assuming other costs such as linen, amenities etc as constant? The rent cannot be the same for all the categories.

    Thanks,
    Danish

    Why do you state "8 categories"?

    Are you a student or a hotel owner?
    I'm just an imagination of your figment !

    Solution! Anybody?

    categories/type! I think once all room/suite types were mentioned it was quite obvious what category meant! I'm looking for the solution of the problem I've posted and I hope to get an answer soon from the wizards present on this forum!

    Not really ....

    You state there are 8 categories - yet you mention only 6 (through pax).

    My mistake.

    It's seven types though King and Twin are interchangeably used. So consider it as 6 categories!

    Now can you provide the solution?

    No...

    We are NOT solution providers - we help students who are WORKing towards a solution.

    We do not support spoon-feeding or free-loading!
