Project 3. Click on Show Rubrics if the rubric is not already displayed.

Summary

Create a Microsoft Excel file with four worksheets that provides extensive use of Excel

capabilities for charting. The charts will be copied into a Microsoft PowerPoint file and

the student will develop appropriate findings and recommendations based on analysis

of the data.

A large rental car company has two metropolitan locations, one at the airport and

another centrally located in downtown. It has been operating since 2015 and each

location summarizes its car rental revenue quarterly. Both locations rent two classes of

cars: economy and premium. Rental revenue is maintained separately for the two

classes of rental vehicles.

The data for this case resides in the file Excel Project 3-data.txt and can be

downloaded by clicking on the Assignments tab, then on the data tile name. It is a text

file (with the file type .txt).

Do not create your own data, you must use the data provided and only the data

provided.
