Consider a game with two players, A and B, who raise one or both hands simultaneously. A
wins if the total number of hands raised is odd, and B wins otherwise. The amount won is
the total number of hands raised, and is paid by the loser to the winner.
(a) (5 pts) Write down the matrix form of the game. Is there a pure strategy solution?
(b) (10 pts) Suppose B raises one hand half of the time and two hands the other half of the
