In Hinduism

Ganitashastra (Mathematics and Algebra)

Source: Hindu Mathematics

Pāṭīgaṇita (पाटीगणित) or “arithmetic” refers to the “science of calculation which requires the use of writing material (the board)”, according to Pṛthudakasvāmī’s commentary on the Brāhmasphuṭasiddhānta by Brahmagupta, a Sanskrit treatise on ancient Indian mathematics (gaṇita-śāstra) and astronomy from the 7th century.—Some later writers have used the term vyaktagaṇita (“the science of calculation by the ‘known’”) for pāṭīgaṇita to distinguish it from algebra which was called avyaktagaṇita (“the science of calculation by the ‘unknown’”). According to Brahmagupta there are twenty operations and eight determinations in pāṭīgaṇita.

The twenty logistics, according to Pṛthudakasvāmī’s commentary, are:

  1. saṃkalita (addition),
  2. vyavakalita or vyutkalita (subtraction),
  3. guṇana (multiplication),
  4. bhāgahāra (division),
  5. varga (square),
  6. vargamūla (square-root),
  7. ghana (cube),
  8. ghanamūla (cube-root),
  9. pañcajāti (the five rules of reduction relating to the five standard forms of fractions),
  10. trairāśika (the rule of three),
  11. vyastatrairāśika (the inverse rule of three),
  12. pañcarāśika (the rule of five),
  13. saptarāśika (the rule of seven),
  14. navarāśika (the rule of nine),
  15. ekādaśarāśika (the rule of eleven),
  16. bhāṇḍapratibhāṇḍa (barter and exchange).

The eight determinations are:

  1. miśraka (mixture),
  2. śreḍhī (progression or series),
  3. kṣetra (plane figures),
  4. khāta (excavation),
  5. citi (stock),
  6. krākacika (saw),
  7. rāśi (mound),
  8. chāyā (shadow).
