Algebra’s History

Few days ago, teacher asked the class 2 search for Algebra’s history for our  Maths subject. Need 2 find out more about it. Check it out:

The history of algebra began in ancient Egypt and Babylon, where people learned to solve linear (ax = b) and quadratic (ax2 + bx = c) equations, as well as indeterminate equations such as x2 + y2 = z2, whereby several unknowns are involved. The ancient Babylonians solved arbitrary quadratic equations by essentially the same procedures taught today. They also could solve some indeterminate equations.

Some of the info above I have copied from the web site to here. To find out more about Algebra’s History, please go to this website: http://www.algebra.com/algebra/about/history/ .

That all for today. Will posts again soon. See ya.
