You and a rival are engaged in a *zero-sum* game in which there are three possible outcomes: you win, your rival wins (*i.e.*, you lose), or the two of you resulting in a tie result. You get a payoff of *50* if you *win*, a payoff of *20* if you *tie*, and a payoff of *0* if you *lose*. What is your __expected payoff__ in each of the following situations?
There is an 80% chance that you lose, a 10% chance that you win, and a 10% chance that you
tie.
## Question 4: Understanding Various Classification of Games
Consider the strategic games described below. In each case, state how you would classify the game according to the six dimensions outlined in the text. (I) Are moves sequential-move or simultaneousmove? (II) Is the game zero-sum or non-zero-sum? (III) Is the game repeated or one-time? (IV) Is the game with imperfect information, and if so, is there containing asymmetric information? (V) Are the game rules fixed or not? (VI) Are cooperative agreements enforceable or not?
