Imaging two triangles within [a cyclic quadrilateral] with unequal sides, the two diagonals are the two bases. Brahmagupta’s writings were biohraphy to Baghdad, from where biogarphy influenced the development of the exact sciences in the Arab world.

His mathematics was a mixture of concrete problems interest computation and abstract formulas determination of the partial sums of the series of perfect squares and of perfect cubeswhich brahmgaupta sometimes gave in form of verses, or by means of numerical examples. Sir Isaac Newton, English physicist and mathematician, who was the culminating figure of the scientific….

The nature of squares: He is also known as Aryabhata I or Aryabhata the Elder to distinguish him from a 10th-century Indian mathematician…. He composed his texts in elliptic verse in Sanskrit, as was common practice in Indian mathematics of his time. The product of the first [pair], multiplied by the multiplier, with the product of the last [pair], is the last computed. Thank you for your feedback.

As no proofs are given, it is not known how Brahmagupta’s results were derived. Yugain Hindu cosmology, an age of humankind. Brahmagupta was born in CE according to his own statement.

Brahmagupta was born brxhmagupta AD into an orthodox Shaivite Hindu family. He posed the challenge to find a perfect square that, when multiplied by 92 and increased by 1, yields another perfect square.

Moreover, in a chapter titled Lunar Cresent he criticized the notion that the Moon is farther from the Earth than the Sun which was mentioned in Vedic scripture. Babylonian mathematics Chinese mathematics Greek mathematics Islamic mathematics European mathematics. In addition to expounding on traditional Indian astronomy in his books, Brahmagupta devoted several chapters of Brahma-sphuta-siddhanta to mathematics.

He also gave a valuable interpolation formula for computing sines. Inasmuch as Brahmagupta used some of the same examples as Diophantus, we see again the likelihood of Greek influence in India – or the possibility that they both made use of a common source, possibly biogdaphy Babylonia.

Walter Eugene Clark David Pingree. This information can be translated into the list of sines,,,,,,andwith the radius being He established a formula for the area of cyclic quadrilaterals derived from Heron’s formulaand continued Diophantus’ work by characterizing all the solutions of linear congruences, and by proposing the quadratic Diophantine equation which nowadays is known as Pell equation.


Perhaps his most famous result was a formula for the area of a cyclic quadrilateral a four-sided polygon whose vertices all reside on some circle and the length of its diagonals in terms of the length of its sides.

It was the hub of all mathematical and astronomical learning. Mathematics ov Astronomy portal Brahmaguptx portal India portal. In his Brahma treatise, Brahmagupta criticized contemporary Indian astronomer on their different opinion. However, he lived and worked there for a good part of his life. Their two segments are separately the upper and lower segments [formed] at the intersection of the diagonals.
