 Consider the standard matching theoretical framework in a spatial context.  

Workers are uniformly distributed along a roadway. Each firm chooses an address  

along the roadway of unit length and hires two workers. The cost of commuting is  

incorporated in the market wage: wage = 50+60d where d is the distance from the  

worker to the nearest firm. Calculate the wage in (i) a city with 4 workers and 2 firms  

and (ii) a city with 6 workers and 3 firms.
