Show transcribed image text 6. Using a payoff matrix to determine the equilibrium outcome a t Suppose there are only two firms that sell smartphones: Flashfone and Pictech. The following payoff matrix shows the profit (in millions of dollars) each company will earn, depending on whether it sets a high or low price for its phones. Pictech Pricing High Low High 11.11 2.15 Flashfone Pricing Low 15.2 8 For example, the lower-left cell shows that if Flashfone prices low and Pictech prices high, Flashfone will earn a profit of $15 million, and Pictech will earn a profit of $2 million. Assume this is a simultaneous game and that Flashfone and Pictech are both profit-maximizing firms. If Flashfone prices high, Pictech will make more profit if it chooses a price, and if Flashfone prices low, Pictech will make more profit if it chooses a price high If Pictech prices high Flashfone will make more profit if it chooses a low price, and if Pictech prices low, Flashfone will make more profit if it chooses a price Considering all of the information given, pricing low a dominant strategy for both Flashfone and Pictech.
