a. If the hotel charges $25.00 per guest, how many guests must attend for the hotel to break even at each event?
b. If the hotel charges $28.00 per guest, how many guests must attend for the hotel to break even at each event?
c.. If the hotel charges $28.00 per guest, would you advise this hotel to host events for 50 or fewer guests? Why or why not?
Durango Mountain Bike Company wants to open a bicycle repair shop in a suburb of a major metropolitan area. The industry association estimates that 20 percent of bicycles are repaired by similar service companies and that the average owner spends $100 per bicycle on maintenance each year. The census and local chamber of commerce data indicate that there are 10,000 bicycles in the county. Three other competitors exist within a twenty-five-mile radius of the proposed business location.

a. What is the potential number of bicycles likely to be commercially repaired?
b. What is the total potential bicycle repair revenue available in the market?
c. How much revenue can Durango Mountain Bike expect to generate?
