Children in poor neighborhoods often have bleak outlooks on life and see little gain from studying. In a recent experiment, children in poor neighborhoods were paid $100 for each A they earned during a six-week grade reporting cycle.
Suppose a participant in this experiment was expending $0 worth of effort in studying for each class before the experiment. Over the next 6 weeks, the student has a math class and an English class, where getting an A in math would require the student to exert $110 worth of effort, while getting an A in
English would require the student to exert $87 worth of effort.
In this experiment, the student (would, would not) increase time studying for math, and the student (would, would not) increase time studying for English.
