```Try this cleaned up version with colons in the right places, dollar signs
removed, and other corrections:

beefmeals=int(input("Enter number of beef meals: "))
shitmeals=int(input("Enter number of vegan meals: "))
party = beefmeals + shitmeals
print("Total meals", party)
a = 0
b = 0
c = 0
if party <= 50:
a=75
print("Room cost \$75")
elif party <= 150:
b=150
print("Room cost \$150")
else:
c=250
print("Room cost \$250")
roomtax = party * 0.065
print("Room tx", roomtax)
print("Beef Meals", beefmeals)
beef = (beefmeals * 15.95)
print("Beef cost", beef)
print("Vegan Meals", shitmeals)
shit = (shitmeals * 10.95)
print("Vegan cost", shit)
cost=(beef + shit)
grat= cost * 0.18
print("Gratuity", grat)
GT = print("Grand total", grat + beef + shit + a + b + c)
