Then A receives at least $70 worth of benefits from the road. If B chooses not to purchase any doses of repair, he will owe $30; on the other hand, he too receives $70 worth of benefits from the 2 doses of repair. Thus, his net payoff from choosing 0 doses, given that A chooses 2 doses, is $40. The payoff matrix is below. (0,3) is the Nash equilibrium of this game. Note that A has a dominant strategy.
