If the number of chances of receiving A is n1 and the number of chances of receiving B is n2, then the expectation is (n1A + n2B)/(n1 + n2). Propositions 1 and 2 deal with equiprobable states. Proposition 3, if interpreted as it subsequently was in modern terms, reaches our current notion of expectation where probabilities do not have to be equal; we would identify the ratio n1/(n1 + n2) ≡ p, so that the expectation is pA + (1 – p)B. With our several-hundred-year remove, Proposition 1 may seem obvious; but that was not so in 1657.
The payoff from the lottery for one player will then be either (A + B) – A = B if he wins or A, the consolation prize if he loses. Notice that the payoff from this lottery is the same as the payoff for fair lottery II where a player has an equal chance of gaining A or B (by Assumption 2). Since lotteries I and II have the same payoffs, they must have the same price (by Assumption 3). Finally, since the fair price of a ticket to lottery I is (A + B)/2, that must also be the fair price for lottery II.
