On the Cities worksheet, click cell F13. The lodging is based on a multiplier by City Type. Some cities are more expensive than others. Insert a VLOOKUP function that looks up the City Type (B13), compares it to the City/COL range (A7:B10), and returns the COL percentage. Then multiply the result of the lookup function by the Total Base Lodging (B5) to get the estimated lodging for the first city. Copy the function from cell F13 and use the Paste Formulas option to c opy the function to the range F14:F18 without removing the border in cell F18.
