Brahmagupta was an Ancient Indian astronomer and mathematician who lived from AD to AD. He was born in the city of Bhinmal in Northwest India. Brahmagupta, whose father was Jisnugupta, wrote important works on mathematics and astronomy. In particular he wrote Brahmasphutasiddhanta Ⓣ, in The field of mathematics is incomplete without the generous contribution of an Indian mathematician named, Brahmagupta. Besides being a great.

He lived in Bhillamala modern Bhinmal during the reign of the Chapa dynasty ruler, Vyagrahamukha. Brahmagupta’s most famous result in geometry is his formula for cyclic quadrilaterals.


Maria Gaetana Agnesi Italian. Their two segments are separately the upper and lower segments [formed] at the intersection of the diagonals. 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 Nothing That Is: Some of the major contribution to the brshmagupta of astronomy by Brahmagupta are solar and lunar eclipse calculations and methods for calculating the position of heavenly bodies over time.

Although Mathematkcian does not explicitly state that these quadrilaterals are cyclic, it is apparent from his rules that this is the case. Please note that our editors may make some formatting changes or correct spelling or grammatical errors, and may also contact you if any clarifications are needed. A negative minus zero is negative, a positive [minus matehmatician positive; zero [minus zero] is zero. The kingdom of Bhillamala seems to have been annihilated but Ujjain repulsed the attacks.

Brahmagupta was brajmagupta highly accomplished ancient Indian astronomer and mathematician who was the first to give rules to compute with zero.

Brahmagupta Biography – Childhood, Life Achievements & Timeline

Our editors will review what you’ve submitted, and if it meets our criteria, we’ll add mathekatician to the article. He continues to give formulas for the lengths and areas of geometric figures, such as the circumradius of an isosceles trapezoid and a scalene brahmagkpta, and brahhmagupta lengths of diagonals in a scalene cyclic quadrilateral.


Thank you for your feedback. He was from the state of Rajasthan of northwest India he is often referred to as Bhillamalacarya, the teacher from Bhillamalaand later became the head of the astronomical observatory at Ujjain in central India.

The field of mathematics is incomplete without the generous contribution of an Indian mathematician named, Brahmagupta. Expeditions were sent into Gurjaradesa. When a positive is to be subtracted from a negative or a negative from a positive, then it is to be added.

When Sindh was conquered mahematician Arabs, his work was translated into Arabic by an astronomer, Muhammad al-Fazari which led to the use of decimal number system in written discourse. Brahmagupta was an orthodox Hindu, and his religious views, particularly the Hindu yuga system of measuring the ages of mankind, influenced his work. The illumination of the moon depends on the position and angle of Sunlight that hits the surface of the moon.

Brahmagupta was born in AD into an orthodox Shaivite Hindu family. Unfortunately, our editorial approach may not be able to accommodate all contributions. Scholars state that he matgematician a great deal of originality to his revision, adding a considerable amount of new material.

An immediate marhematician was the spread of the decimal number system used in the texts. Contact our editors with your feedback. Brahmagupta dedicated a substantial portion of his work to geometry and trigonometry. Bhillamala, called pi-lo-mo-lo by Xuanzangwas the apparent capital of the Gurjaradesathe second largest kingdom of Western India, comprising southern Rajasthan and northern Gujarat in modern-day India.

Leonardo da Vinci, Italian: He stressed the importance of these topics rbahmagupta a qualification for a mathematician, or calculator ganaka.

Your contribution may be further edited by our staff, and its publication is subject to our final approval. The rupas are [subtracted on the side] below that from which the square and the unknown are to be subtracted. Diminish by the middle [number] the square-root of the rupas multiplied by four times the square and increased by the square of the middle [number]; divide the remainder by twice the square.


The sum of the cubes is the square of that [sum] Piles of these with identical balls [can also be computed]. 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. Brahmagupta gave the solution of the general linear equation in chapter eighteen of Brahmasphutasiddhanta.

In the beginning of chapter twelve of his Brahmasphutasiddhantaentitled CalculationBrahmagupta details operations on fractions.

Previously, the sum 3 – 4, for example, was considered to be either brahmahupta or, at best, just zero. Brahmagupta’s texts were translated into Arabic by Muhammad al-Fazarian astronomer in Al-Mansur’s court under the names Sindhind and Arakhand. He was much ahead of his contemporaries and his mathematical and astronomical calculations remained among the most accurate available for several centuries. Al-Khwarizmi also wrote his own version of Sindhinddrawing on Al-Fazari’s version and incorporating Ptolemaic elements.

The sum of the squares is that [sum] multiplied by twice the [number of] step[s] increased by one [and] divided by three. The nature of squares: The texts composed by Brahmagupta were composed in elliptic verse in Sanskritas was common practice in Indian mathematics.

In addition to being an accomplished astronomer, he was also a much revered mathematician. His remaining eighteen sines are,brahmaguupta,,, brhmagupta, Aryabhata lived in Kusumapura near modern Patnaand Brahmagupta is said to have been from Bhillamala modern Bhinmalwhich was the capital of the Gurjara-Pratihara dynasty. Zero Modern number system Brahmagupta’s theorem Brahmagupta’s identity Brahmagupta’s problem Brahmagupta-Fibonacci identity Brahmagupta’s interpolation formula Brahmagupta’s formula.

According to himself, Brahmagupta was born in CE and was the follower of Shaivism. It is speculated that it was the revision of the siddhanta he received from the school.
