Question;Consider a Cournot duopoly model where the market price is given by the inverse demand function:p = 30? 3? q1? q2.And suppose each firm produces at a cost of 25 per unit of production (i.e, total costs are given by 25? qifor i = 1, 2).(a) Find the payoff functions u1 (q1, q2) and u2 (q1, q2).(b) Suppose player 1 believes that player 2 is equally likely to produce q2 = 10, q2 = 15, q2 = 18 and q2 = 22 units, and these are the only production values player 1 believes player 2 can choose. Let?2 denote these beliefs for player 1.Compute u1 (q1,?2) for these beliefs?2.(c) Suppose player 2 believes that player 1 will produce q1 = 13 with probability 1/3,q1 = 10 with probability 1/4, and q1 = 16 with probability 5/12, and these are the only production values player 2 believes player 1 can choose. Let?1 denote these beliefs for player 2. Compute u2 (?1, q2) for these beliefs?1.
