M is for mighty, your inner strength. Most of his works are composed in elliptic verse, a common practice in Indian mathematics at the time, and consequently have something of a poetic ring to them. The caliph invited a scholar of Ujjain by the name of Kankah in 770 A. Britannica does not review the converted text. He was also able to predict the motion of the planets and the timing of solar and lunar eclipses. He stressed the importance of these topics as a qualification for a mathematician, or calculator ganaka. This was not to be his last publication.

Even more impressive, this was not the only significant contribution that Brahmagupta would make to the world of mathematics and science. His purpose was not necessarily to debunk prior scholars, but to add original ideas on aspects of celestial concepts. He spent most of his life living near the modern Indian city of Bhinmal, which was then known as Bhillamala. Ghurye believed that he might have been from the Multan or Abu region. Without the use of zero and its value defined, according to him, arithmetic really had nowhere to go.

He practiced the Hindu religion of Shaivite. For many cultures, the concept of the sun being blocked by the moon or alignment ideas was a spiritual matter. He gave formulas for the lengths and areas of other geometric figures as well, and the Brahmagupta's theorem named after him states that if a cyclic quadrilateral has perpendicular diagonals, then the perpendicular diagonal to a side from the point of intersection of the diagonals always bisects the opposite side. R is for rich, in the love from others A is for able, for you surely are. However, even in that exciting and progressive environment, this book stood out among the rest.

Later, Brahmagupta moved to Ujjain, which was also a major centre for astronomy. Brahmagupta was the first to give rules to compute with zero. His work was very significant considering the fact that he had no telescope or scientific equipment to help him arrive at his conclusions. In chapter eighteen of his Brahmasphutasiddhanta, Brahmagupta describes operations on negative numbers. The square-root of the sum of the two products of the sides and opposite sides of a non-unequal quadrilateral is the diagonal. This book has 24 chapters and 1008 Sanskrit Verses. H is for hero, as you appear to many.

Brahmagupta During the ancient historical time of Harshabardhana in 598 Brahmagupta was born in a remote area of Rajasthan. Through his research, he postulated a number of concepts that far surpassed many scholars in the arena of movement in the sky. He lived in Bhillamala modern Bhinmal during the reign of the Chapa dynasty ruler, Vyagrahamukha. A fortune subtracted from Zero is a debt. Product multiplication or Quotient division of two debts is a fortune. It was written by a brilliant mathematician and astronomer named Brahmagupta, and in it, he developed most of the rules that we still use to work with the numeral zero.

If the moon were above the sun, how would the power of waxing and waning, etc. Kankah used the Brahmasphutasiddhanta to explain the Hindu system of arithmetic astronomy. Further commentaries continued to be written into the 12th century. He was much ahead of his contemporaries and his mathematical and astronomical calculations remained among the most accurate available for several centuries. In chapter 7 of his Brahmasphutasiddhanta, entitled Lunar Crescent, Brahmagupta rebuts the idea that the Moon is farther from the Earth than the Sun, an idea which is maintained in scriptures. The height of a mountain multiplied by a given multiplier is the distance to a city; it is not erased.

In his work on arithmetic, Brahmagupta explained how to find the cube and cube-root of an integer and gave rules facilitating the computation of squares and square roots. It had many rules of arithmetic which is part of the mathematical solutions now. He was the head of the astronomical observatory at Ujjain, and during his tenure there wrote four texts on mathematics and astronomy: the Cadamekela in 624, the Brahmasphutasiddhanta in 628, the Khandakhadyaka in 665, and the Durkeamynarda in 672. He also made contributions to geometry, including accurately calculating the constant pi, and developing a way to calculate the area of a cyclic quadrilateral that is still known as Brahmagupta's Formula. At the age of 67, he composed his next well known work Khanda-khādyaka, a practical manual of Indian astronomy in the karana category meant to be used by students.

Zero minus Zero is a Zero. Measurements and constructions In some of the verses before verse 40, Brahmagupta gives constructions of various figures with arbitrary sides. He is believed to have died in Ujjain. T is for tough, for you are not easily broken A is for agreeable, the best side of you! This mathematical epic of Brahmagupta is the highest knowledge on mathematics, arithmetic, trigonometry and algebra. The sum of the thunderbolt products is the first. At present knowing, those things are very simple, but in those days without any instruments knowing the Universal facts were very difficult.

Trigonometry Sine table In Chapter 2 of his Brahmasphutasiddhanta, entitled Planetary True Longitudes, Brahmagupta presents a sine table: 2. Brahmagupta wrote many textbooks for mathematics and astronomy while he was in Ujjain. These chapters look many of the same topics found in the first, such as eclipses, planet risings and settings, planet conjunctions and other ideas. It puts a deeper emphasis on computing values that involved sines. He also gave rules for dealing with five types of combinations of fractions.
