He went on to solve systems of simultaneous indeterminate equations stating that the desired variable must first be isolated, and then the equation must be divided by the desired variable’s coefficient.


Addition was indicated by placing the numbers side by side, subtraction by placing a dot over the subtrahend, and division by placing the divisor below the dividend, brahmabupta to our notation but without the bar. In particular, Brahmagupta had a profound understanding of the number zero. Negative divided by positive is negative A positive or negative number when divided by zero is a fraction with the zero siddhhanta denominator Zero divided by a negative or positive number is either zero or is expressed as a fraction with zero as numerator and the finite quantity as denominator Zero divided by zero siddhata zero The last of these rules is notable brahmaguptta the earliest attempt to define division by zero, even though it is not compatible with modern number theory division by zero is undefined for a field.

In this study he also estimated the value of pi to be approximately three. Articles with limited geographic scope from December I have been very pleased with all the items. Previously, the sum 3 – 4, for example, was considered to be either meaningless or, at best, just zero.


Nevertheless, it contained the first clear description of the quadratic formula the solution of the quadratic equation.

Brahma-sphuta-siddhanta | work by Brahmagupta |

Imaging two triangles within [a cyclic quadrilateral] with unequal sides, the two diagonals are the two bases. In the first part the astronomical constants are the same as those of Aryabhatas ardharatrika system, but the methods of spherical astronomy, calculations of eclipses and other topics are almost the same as in the Brahmasphutasiddhanta in the Utters Khandakhadyaka Brahmagupta gives corrections to the Khandakhadyaka proper.

In his work on arithmetic, Brahmagupta explained how to siddhxnta the cube and cube-root of an integer and gave rules facilitating the computation of squares and square roots.

Verify the characters on the left From: Headings and sub-headings have been provided to facilitate consultation. The great 7th Century Indian mathematician and astronomer Brahmagupta wrote some important works on both mathematics and astronomy. His straightforward rules for the volumes of a rectangular prism and pyramid are followed by a more ambiguous one, which may refer to finding the average depth of a sequence of puts with different depths.

Preface The Present work contains the Sanskrit text of Ganitadhyaya of Brahmasphutasiddhanta with introduction’, English translation and notes along with Illustrative examples of Prthudakasvami and others. Parallel rules and example found in other available works on Hindu mathematics have been indicated in the foot notes.

As always, I can count on Exotic India to find treasures not found in stores in my area. The portions of the English translation enclosed within brackets do not occur in the text and have been given in the translation to make it understandable, and are at places explanatory.


Whatever he discovered in astronomy was often a consequence of his mathematics Boyer ; Waghmare et al. It’s my third order and i’m very pleased with you. Foreword Brahmagupta CE was one of the most popular mathematicians of ancient India.

In fact, Brahmagupta is described as having brahmagputa better understanding of number systems and place value than any of his contemporaries. If there are many [colors], the pulverizer [is to be used]. The sum of the thunderbolt products is the first.

Brahmagupta the most celebrated mathematician belonging to the school of Ujjain was born in A. View Post on Facebook. Suresh Chandra Mishra Paperback Edition: He finds the volume of rectangular prisms, pyramids, and the frustum of a square pyramid. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.

Given the lengths of the sides of brahmaguptx cyclic quadrilateral, Brahmagupta gave an approximate and an exact formula for the figure’s area.

As a young man, Brahmagupta was a disciple of Varahmihir, a great astronomer of the time, who had written extensively. Khandakhadyaka The Khandakhadyaka is a practical manual of Indian astronomy of the Karana category. Thus Brahmagupta enumerates his first six sine-values as, Multiplication, evolution, and unknown quantities were represented by abbreviations of appropriate terms.
