2.5 )LaVilla is a village in the Italian Alps. Given its enormous popularity among Swiss, German, Austrian, and Italian skiers, all of its beds are always booked in the winterseason and there are, on average, 1 ,200 skiers in the village. On average, skiers stay in LaVilla for 1 0 days. a. How many new skiers are arriving-on average-in LaVilla every day?

b. A study done by the largest hotel in the village has shown that skiers spend on average $50 per person on the first day and $30 per person on each additional day in local restaurants. The study also forecasts that--due to increased hotel prices-the average length of stay for the 2003/2004 season will be reduced to five days. What will be the percentage change in revenues of local restaurants compared to last year (when skiers still stayed for 1 0 days)? Assume that hotels continue to be fully booked !

Ans:-

a. 1200 / 10 = 20

b. 2002/2003 year revenue:- 1500 * 50 + 1500 * 30 * 9 = 75000 + 4,05,000 = 4,80,000 $

2003/2004 anticipated revenue:- 1500 * 50 + 1500* 30 * 4 = 75000 + 180000 = 2,55,000 $

Percentage change compared to Last year: 100 - (255000/480000) * 100 = 100 - 53.125 = 46.87
