The Arithmetic System of the Ancient Tamils
No one looks back on the mathematical system of the ancient Tamils in this age of science and mathematics. Contemporary mathematicians are not much interested either. This is due to the long gap between the old ancient mathematical system and today’s mathematical system. Not only that but it is not easy to understand.
Looking at the mathematical method of the ancients it is possible to know that they had a very subtle knowledge.
The ancients calculated by putting fractional numbers. If the fractional number is the number 1/8, 1/4, 3/4, 1/2 then we know the fraction. But they have also used more subtle fractional numbers than this.
