CSCI 7-01 – Assignment 4
25 points, Due 10/24/2013
Your cruise ship, the S.S. Rusty T. Buckette, hires out for dinner party cruises. A fund raising committee has
agreed to pay you $30.00 per person provided that a minimum of 200 people sign up for a moonlight dinner
dance cruise. Anxious for business (and to pay your crew), you agree to lower your price by 50 cents per ticket
for EACH additional group of 10 people showing up over the minimum of 200. For example:
210 people Ticket Price is $29.50
220 people Ticket Price is $29.00
230 people Ticket Price is $28.50
The ship's maximum carrying capacity is 500 passengers. You will incur a fixed cost of $2,500.00 no matter how
many people show up. Your program should allow the following:
1. Compute the ticket price and profit for each group of passengers starting at 200, 210, 220, 230, 240,
250, ... , 490, 500).
2. Determine the maximum PROFIT, the number of passengers needed to generate that profit, and the ticket
price that will generate that profit.
3. Allow the program user (...that's you) to enter the proposed initial ticket price, the minimum passengers,
the maximum number of passengers that the ship can carry to calculate the ticket prices and profit for each
group of passengers (i.e. 200, 210, 220, 230, etc.). The loop will execute a different number of times
during the execution (Use a function to contain the calculations and resulting output?)
4. User can execute this any number of times. Logic should ask user if they wish to quit or continue.
Algorithms needed:
NP is the Number of Passengers
TP is the Proposed Ticket Price
MP is the Minimum Number of Passengers
Cost of Ticket = TP - (((NP - MP) /10) * .5)
Profit = (NP * Cost of Ticket) - 2500
Since you are "incrementing by 10 passengers", you will be using a loop.
Perform the calculations for the following data:
$30.00 proposed ticket price
200 minimum passengers
500 maximum passengers
$45.50 proposed ticket price
300 minimum passengers
500 maximum passengers
$20.00 proposed ticket price
100 minimum passengers
500 maximum passengers
Your output should approximately look like:

Number Ticket
Passengers Price Profit
300 $20.25 $3575.00
310 $19.75 $3622.50
320 $19.25 $3660.00
. . .
. . .
. . .
500 $10.25 $2625.00
Maximum Profit is $3712.50
Ticket Cost to Generate Maximum Profit is $17.75
Passengers Needed to Generate Maximum Profit is 350
The calculations are contained in a loop (either a while loop or for loop). You are generating a loop iteration for
each group of 10 passengers.

Here is a pdf of the actual assignment. It is much easier to read. Keep in mind I'm not asking you to do my homework. But I feel behind due to a fever this week, and this assignment is due on the 24th at 12pm . I fell behind in my reading this week, and I have a vague idea of how to approach this, but I need guidance . The python version I'm using is 3.2

Thanks Gavin.
