# Consider the payoff matrix of the Battle of the Sexes we discussed in class: src="/qa/attachment/10700695/" alt="螢幕截圖 2019-10-02 下午5.05.16.png" /> ATTACHMENT PREVIEW Download attachment 螢幕截圖 2019-10-02 下午5.05.16.png Consider the payoff matrix of the Battle of the Sexes we discussed in class: Wife \ Husband Opera Football Opera I 2, l 0, 0 Football | 0, 0 1, 2 Let p be the probability that the wife goes to the Opera and q be the probability that the husband goes to the Opera. (a) Suppose that the couple still prefers going to some event together rather than alone (i.e. the payoffs for (O, F) and (F, O) are still (0, 0)), propose ONE change to the payoff in the payoff matrix so that the mixed strategy Nash equilibrium will change from [(2/3 0, 1/3 F), (1/3 0, 2/3 F)] to [(2/3 0, 1/3 F), (1/2 0, 1/2 F)] (i.e. q will be increased from 1/3 to 1/2). Write down the modiﬁed payoff matrix and show that a mixed strategy Nash equilibrium is attained when p = 2/3 and q = 1/2. (b) Calculate the difference between the modiﬁed expected payoff and the original expected payoff for the wife.
