DVY plc recently acquired Valuestays (to become division V).   Valuestays offers low-price hotel accommodation around the UK and parts of Europe. Although each hotel has much of the same features (branding, room design, etc), there is variability in the rates charged and the facilities offered at hotels across the division.

DVY plc has appointed you to be consulting manager to the Malta hotel, and to assess and advise on its performance.  The hotel has 200 rooms and is open for 364 days per year (with one night closed for the annual staff party).  Each room has the same furniture and facilities and room rates are all €45 per room.

You have decided to look at a typical week of occupancy as a basis for your review, as considered by the figures below (excluding national holidays and events).
