In the 5th century, the Indian mathematician Aryabhata wrote a small yet well-known paintings on astronomy in 118 verses known as the Aryabhatiya. Its moment bankruptcy provides a precis of Hindu arithmetic as much as that time, and two hundred years later, the Indian astronomer Bhaskara glossed that bankruptcy. This quantity is a literal English translation of Bhaskara’s statement whole with an introduction.
