## How did Muslim mathematicians influence the math you use today?

Islamic mathematicians quickly adopted the Indian system of numerals, which we know today as Arabic numerals. Other contributions included creating algebra, the use of decimals, mathematical induction, and trigonometry, among others.

## Who invented mathematics first in world?

The earliest evidence of written mathematics dates back to the ancient Sumerians, who built the earliest civilization in Mesopotamia. They developed a complex system of metrology from 3000 BC.

**Who was the most famous Muslim mathematician?**

Medieval Muslims made invaluable contributions to the study of mathematics, and their key role is clear from the many terms derived from Arabic. Perhaps the most famous mathematician was Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi (ca. 800-ca. 847), author of several treatises of earth-shattering importance.

### How did Islam affect math?

“Perhaps one of the most significant advances made by Arabic mathematics began at this time with the work of al-Khwarizmi, namely the beginnings of algebra. Another important aspect of the introduction of algebraic ideas was that it allowed mathematics to be applied to itself in a way which had not happened before.”

### Who really invented algebra?

Al-Khwarizmi

Al-Khwarizmi: The Father of Algebra.

**Who is the father of Mathematics?**

Archimedes

Sometimes referred to as the father of mathematics, Archimedes had an extraordinary influence on mathematics and science. Eric Temple Bell wrote: “Any list of the three “greatest” mathematicians of all history would include the name of Archimedes.

## Who is world best mathematician?

The best 10 mathematicians are:

- Leonhard Euler.
- Srinivasa Ramanujan.
- Carl Friedrich Gauss.
- Isaac Newton.
- Euclid.
- Archimedes.
- Aryabhatta.
- Gottfried W.

## Is 0 real or imaginary?

Is 0 an imaginary number? Since an imaginary number is the square root of a nonpositive real number. And zero is nonpositive and is its own square root, so zero can be considered as an imaginary number.

**Is √ 16 an irrational number?**

A rational number is defined as the number that can be expressed in the form of a quotient or division of two integers i.e., p/q, where q = 0. So √16 is an irrational number.

### Who is No 1 mathematician in the world?

Sir Isaac Newton PRS was an English physicist and mathematician who is widely recognised as one of the most influential scientists of all time and a key figure in the scientific revolution. He is the only human being to be argued as the greatest mathematician ever and the greatest physicist ever at the same time.
