**Exposition of the Theory of Chances and Probabilities**

by A. A. Cournot

**Publisher**: arXiv.org 2013**Number of pages**: 216

**Description**:

I aim to make accessible the rules of the calculus of probability to those, unacquainted with the higher chapters of mathematics. The reading of my book will not require any other knowledge except elementary algebra, or even, strictly speaking, algebraic notation.
