5.3.1 A Zero-Sum Game (25 pts)
Consider the following zero-sum game matrix for two players, RED and BLUE. Each player has three strategies from which to choose (strategies "A", "B", and "C"). Here is the game matrix; the values shown are the payoff for RED (the payoff for BLUE is just the negative of these values).
Eliminate, if possible, any dominated choices for either player; then calculate the value of this game for RED, allowing for the possibility of mixed strategies.
5.3.2 A Non-Zero-Sum Game (20 pts)
Consider the following non-zero-sum matrix for two players, BONNIE and CLYDE. Each player has two strategic choices ("A" and "B"). The game matrix is shown with CLYDE's payoff in italics:
(a) Is this game a prisoner's dilemma situation? Why or why not?
(b) Does the game have an equilibrium point? Why or why not?
