  • “One popular example of such myths claims that the original forms of these symbols indicated their value through the quantity of angles they contained.”

    “Despite evidence to the contrary, some folkloric explanations for the origin of modern Arabic numerals persist. While these hypotheses continue to propagate due to their seemingly well-constructed arguments, they were based entirely on speculation by individuals who, while genuinely intrigued by the subject, were either ignorant of the relevant archeological facts, or simply lived in an era preceding much of their modern rediscovery. One popular example of such myths claims that the original forms of these symbols indicated their value through the quantity of angles they containe” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic_numerals

  1. 1. 013456… 1 2 4 5 The Numbers
  2. 2. The numbers we write are made up of algorithms, (1, 2, 3, 4, etc) called arabic algorithms, to distinguish them from the roman algorithms (I; II; III; IV; etc.). 013456… 1 2 4 5
  3. 3. 013456… 1 2 4 5 The arabs popularise these algorithms, but their origin goes back to the phenecian merchants that used them to count and do their commercial contability.
  4. 4. 013456… 1 2 4 5 Have you ever asked the question why 1 is “one”, 2 is “two”, 3 is “three”…..?
  5. 5. 013456… 1 2 4 5 What is the logic that exist in the arabic algorithms?
  6. 6. 013456… 1 2 4 5 Easy, very easy…! There are angles!
  7. 7. 013456… 1 2 4 5 Look at these algorithms written in their primitive form and check it up! …
  8. 8. 013456… 1 2 4 5 1 angle 2 angles 3 angles 4 angles
  9. 9. 013456… 1 2 4 5 5 angles 6 angles 7 angles 8 angles
  10. 10. 013456… 1 2 4 5 9 angles
  11. 11. 013456… 1 2 4 5 And the most interesting and intelligent of all…..
  12. 12. 013456… 1 2 4 5 Zero angle !
  13. 13. 013456… 1 2 4 5 Moral of the story: It is never late to learn!
  14. 14. 013456… 1 2 4 5 Share it with your friends…….
