Hindi Numbers







Hindi is the national language of India.So Hindi Numbers are important for Indian students.

It is now universally accepted that our decimal numbers derive from forms, which were invented in India and transmitted via Arab culture to Europe, undergoing a number of changes on the way. We also know that several different ways of writing numbers evolved in India before it became possible for existing decimal numerals to be marred with the place-value principle of the Babylonians to give birth to the system which eventually became the one which we use today.

Because of lack of authentic records, very little is known of the development of ancient Hindu mathematics. The earliest history is preserved in the 5000-year-old ruins of a city at Mohenjo Daro, located Northeast of present-day Karachi in Pakistan. Evidence of wide streets, brick dwellings an apartment houses with tiled bathrooms, covered city drains, and community swimming pools indicates a civilization as advanced as that found anywhere else in the ancient Orient.

These early peoples had systems of writing, counting, weighing, and measuring, and they dug canals for irrigation. All this required basic mathematics and engineering.

The first important astronomical work, "Surya Siddhanta" ("knowledge of the sun"), was written about the beginning of the fifth century. Hindu mathematics from here on became subservient to astronomy rather than religion. The mathematics coming from India were also influenced by Greek, Babylonian and Chinese mathematics. Brahmagupta was the most prominent mathematician of the seventh century. He lived and worked in the astronomical centre of Ujjain, in central India. Later in Indian history, we also had other, who wrote well about the Indian history of numbers. Some of their names were Aryabhatas, Mahavira and Bhaskara. Hindu mathematics after Bhaskara made only spotty progress until modern time. In 1907, the Indian Mathematical Society was founded, and two years later the Journal of the Indian Mathematical Society started in Madres.
