1. Derive the pure strategy Nash equilibrium and the equilibrium profits when b = 0.

Ans. 0.5 each

2. Derive the pure strategy Nash equilibrium and the equilibrium profits when b > 0. Note that two pure strategy Nash equilibria may exist.

Ans. All or nothing

3. Dose an increase in b benefit the two firms? This means that you should explain whether or not at increase in the demand size benefits the firm.
