After giving the value of pi, brahjagupta deals with the geometry of plane figures and solids, such as finding volumes and surface areas or empty spaces dug out of solids.

Given the lengths of the sides of any cyclic quadrilateral, Brahmagupta gave an approximate and an exact formula for the figure’s area. Brahmagupta’s understanding of the number systems was indeed remarkable. The additive is equal to the product of the additives.

Indian mathematician and astronomer of Bhinmal, a town in the Jalore District of Rajasthan, India, Brahmagupta wrote Brahmasphutasiddhanta. Also, if m and x are rational, so are dasiddhantz and c.

A negative or a positive divided by zero has that [zero] as its divisor, or zero divided by a negative or a positive [has that negative or positive as its divisor]. The statues arrived yesterday. The square-root of the sum of the two products of the sides and opposite sides of a non-unequal quadrilateral is the diagonal.

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. I hope to do future purchases from you. In chapters twelve and eighteen, Brahmagupta established two major fields of Indian mathematics: The book was written completely in verse and does not contain any kind of mathematical notation.


Views Read Edit View history. Previously, the sum 3 – 4, for vrahmagupta, was considered to be either meaningless or, at best, just zero. It is an authentic translation of Ganitadhyaya part of Brahmasphutasiddhants, with notes and illustrative examples of Prthudakasvami, The Sanskrit text adopted is the one edited by Ram Swarup Sharma CE and collated with the text, edited earlier CE by Sudhakar Dwivedi. His straightforward rules for the volumes of a rectangular prism and siddahnta are followed by a more ambiguous one, which may refer to finding the average depth of a sequence of puts with different depths.

As always, I can count on Exotic India to find treasures not found in stores brahmaguptta my area. 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 from Babylonia.


It’s my third order and i’m very pleased with you. It was siddjanta easy ordering from the website. Their delivery is prompt, packaging very secure and the price reasonable. The base decreased and increased by the difference between the squares of the sides divided by the base; when divided by two they are the true segments. The next formula apparently deals with the volume of a frustum of a square pyramid, where the “pragmatic” volume is the depth times the square of the mean of the edges of the top and bottom faces, while the “superficial” volume is the depth times their mean area.

It is interesting to note also that the algebra of Brahmagupta, like that of Diophantus, was syncopated. In particular, Brahmagupta had a profound understanding of the number zero.


Brahmagupta dedicated a substantial portion of his work to geometry and trigonometry. According to Alberuni, Bhilmala was between Multan and Anhilwara, sixteen yojanas from the latter.

The two sidhanta, divided by the additive or the subtractive, are the additive rupas. The work Khandakhadyaka consists of two distinct parts, viz. Whatever he discovered in brahmaguptaa was often a consequence of his mathematics Boyer ; Waghmare et al. We have no knowledge of Brahmagupta’ s teachers, or of his education, but we know he studied the five traditional siddhantas of Indian astronomy.

Brāhmasphuṭasiddhānta – Wikipedia

One thing is certain however; the time Brahmagupta was born would play a larger role in defining his later works than the place he was born. Again, thank you very much. Brahmagupta not only describes many astronomical instruments, but also teaches methods of computing various astronomical elements from the readings taken with these instruments. Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same!

The rupas are [subtracted on the side] below that from which the square and the unknown are to be subtracted. I express my profound gratitude to authorities of Chinmaya International Foundation Shodha Sansthan for taking up the task of publishing the work.

The accurate [area] is the square root from the product of the halves of the sums of the sides diminished by [each] side of the quadrilateral.
