Ganitashastra (Mathematics and Algebra)

Source: archive.org: Hindu Mathematics

Yuta (युत) refers to “added” whereas its abbreviation (yu) refers to the “operation of addition”, according to the principles of Bījagaṇita (“algebra” or ‘science of calculation’), according to Gaṇita-śāstra, ancient Indian mathematics and astronomy.—There are no special symbols for the fundamental operations in the Bakhshali work. Any particular operation intended is ordinarily indicated by placing the tachygraphic abbreviation, the initial syllable of a Sanskrit word of that import, after, occasionally before, the quantity affected. Thus the operation of addition is indicated by yu (an abbreviation from yuta, meaning added), subtraction by + which is very probably from kṣa (abbreviated from kṣaya, diminished), multiplication by gu (from gum or guṇita, multiplied) and division by bhā (from bhāga or bhājita, divided).

If you do not accede to my request, I shall undoubtedly die. I will immediately leave this house or swallow poison. With a rope I shall tie Pārvatī round my neck and go to a thick forest. I would rather drown myself in the great ocean. I shall never give my daughter to him. [...]”.

2) Yuta (युत) refers to “being in the company (of a woman)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.34 (“The Story of Anaraṇya”).—Accordingly, as Vasiṣṭha said to Himavat (Himācala): “[...] In the meantime the sage Pippalāda eagerly hastening back to his hermitage saw a certain Gandharva in an isolated place in the penance-grove. The Gandharva was an expert in the science of erotics. He was in the company of a woman (strī-yuta). He was therefore completely submerged m the ocean of pleasure, sexual dalliance and was lusty. On seeing him the great sage became very lustful. He lost interest in penance and began to think of acquiring a wife. [...]”.

Yuta, (pp. of yu, yauti to fasten but Dhtp 338: “missane”) fastened to (Loc.), attracted by, bent on, engaged in D. I. 57 (sabba-vārī°); Sn. 842 (pesuṇeyye; Nd1 233 reads yutta in exegesis, do. at p. 234, with further explanation āyutta, payutta etc.), 853 (atimāne); Dāvs. V, 18 (dhiti°).—Note. yuta is doubtful in phrase tejasā-yuta in Niraya passage at A. I, 142=M. III, 183=Nd1 405=Nd2 304III=J. V, 266. The more likely reading is either tejas’āyuta (so BSk. M. Vastu 9), or tejasā yutta (so Nd2 & PvA. 52), i.e. endowed with, furnished with, full of heat.—We find a similar confusion between uyyuta & uyyutta. (Page 557)
