3. (30) Consider the following problem of "dividing a dollar". For player 1, the utility of obtaining Xl is Ul(Xr) Xl, and for player 2, the utility of obtaining Xz is U2(X2) = v'3X2. There is \$100 to be split between the two players. If they cannot agree on an equitable split, then each player will receive \$0.

(I think that you will find this part much easier if you use your answer to part (c) in the maximization view of the ~ ash bargaining solution, rather than the (t, r) characterization, but either approach is okay.)
