Killer (Shubik, Ch 3, 6): There are 3 players A, B, C, each with a balloon and a gun. At each round, one of the players whose balloon is still alive is chosen, with equal probability. That player chooses a balloon that is still alive to aim at, fires, and hits it with a certain probability. When only one balloon is alive, the corresponding player wins \$27. Let a,b,c denote the probabilities for A, B, C, respectively. Assume a= 0.8, b=0.6, c =0.4

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
