Please improve this article and discuss the issue on the talk page. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape–thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. Brahmagupta lived beyond CE. Indian bramhagupta and astronomer of Bhinmal, a town in the Jalore District of Rajasthan, India, Brahmagupta wrote Brahmasphutasiddhanta. The kingdom of Bhillamala seems to have been annihilated but Ujjain repulsed the attacks. The sum of the cubes is the square of that [sum] Piles of these with identical balls [can also be computed].

I ordered sdidhanta book for my mother and it came within a few days from India to NYC!! Whatever he discovered in astronomy was often a consequence of his mathematics Boyer ; Waghmare et al. In this study he also estimated the value of pi to be approximately three. The procedures for finding the cube and cube-root of an integer, however, are described compared the latter to Aryabhata’s very similar formulation.

The Brahmasphutasiddhanta is a standard treatise on ancient Indian astronomy, containing twenty four chapters and a total of verses in Arya meter. In addition to these contributions, Brahmagupta also made contributions to the study of linear and quadratic equations.

About the Author Sri Venugopal D. Sachau says, ‘Brahmagupta occupies an important place in the history of oriental culture.

Brahmagupta – Indian Mathematics – The Story of Mathematics

Brahmagupta went even further in his critique of heterodox ideas when he attacked Aryabhata. If there are many [colors], the pulverizer [is to be used]. The base decreased and increased by the difference between the squares of the sides divided by the base; when divided by siddhatna they are the true segments.


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.

But his description of division by zero differs from our modern understanding:. The height of a mountain multiplied by a given multiplier is the distance to a city; it is not erased. I wish to record my deep appreciation to Smt. Thank you very much. Zero Modern number system Brahmagupta’s theorem Brahmagupta’s identity Brahmagupta’s problem Brahmagupta-Fibonacci identity Brahmagupta’s interpolation formula Brahmagupta’s formula.

This information can be translated into the list of sines,,,,,,andwith the radius being To obtain a recurrence one has to know that a rectangle proportional to the original eventually recurs, a fact that was rigorously proved only in by Lagrange. The brightness is increased in the direction of the sun. However, he lived and worked there for a good part of his life.

Prithudaka Svamina later commentator, called him Bhillamalacharyathe teacher from Bhillamala.


The texts composed by Brahmagupta were composed in elliptic verse, as was common practice in Indian mathematics, and consequently have a poetic ring to them. He first describes addition and subtraction. With missionary zeal Shri Venugopal has given us now Brahmagupta’s Ganits.

Brahmagupta was the first to give rules to compute with zero. He introduced the concept of zero as the siddhanya of subtracting a number from itself. In other words, he brrahmagupta logical mathematical reasoning to prove astronomical ideas. Pages from the book. According to tradition of those times, Ganits includes matter pertaining to arithmetic problems on mixtures, plane figures, shadows, series piles and excavations.

This leads up to Brahmagupta’s famous theorem. According to his own statement: The sum of two positive quantities is positive The sum of two negative quantities is negative The sum of zero and a negative number is negative The sum of zero and a positive number is positive The sum of zero and zero is zero The sum of a positive and a negative is their difference; or, if they are equal, zero In subtraction, the less is to be taken from the greater, positive from positive In subtraction, the less is to be taken from the greater, negative from negative When the greater however, is subtracted from the less, the difference is reversed When positive is to be subtracted from negative, and negative from positive, they must be added together The product of a negative quantity and a positive quantity is negative The product of two negative quantities is positive The product of two positive quantities is positive Positive divided by positive or negative by negative is positive Positive divided by negative is negative.


Volume 2, Issue 1.


The square of the diagonal is diminished by the square of half the sum of the base and the top; the square-root is the perpendicular [altitudes]. Given the lengths of the sides of any cyclic quadrilateral, Brahmagupta gave an approximate and an exact formula for the figure’s area. His algorithms to compute square root, to solve quadratic equations, indeterminate equations, etc. Ganita Kaumudi with Hindi Brahmaugpta and Questions.

The square of a negative or of a positive is positive; [the square] of zero is zero.

I’ve just received the shawl and love it already!! Everything was in sidehanta and the book, well packaged. Ahmed; Benham Sadeghi; Robert G. The two square-roots, divided by the additive or the subtractive, are the additive rupas. He further finds the average depth of a series of pits.
