We have tried several different things and can't come up with a successful command. Any help you can give will be much appreciated!!
There are two ways to get those totals, depending on whether you know

how to work lists or not. If you do, then you should make a list of

occupied_rooms, and sum() it at the end, and make a list of

rooms_on_flow, and sum that at the end.

But as you discovered, sum() won't work on an int (BTW, you should give

the entire traceback instead of saying "doesn't work". In this case, it

was obvious, but it might not be.)

On the other hand, if you don't know what a list is, then you need to

accumulate those numbers as you go. Either way, you need extra

variables to represent the whole hotel, and you need to do something

inside the loop to adjust those variables.
