Numbers and Its Origin

The numbers that we use today are made up of algorithms (1, 2, 3, 4, etc…) which are called Arabic algorithms in order to distinguish them from the roman algorithms (I, II, III, IV, etc…).

The Arabs popularized these algorithms, but their origin goes way back to the Phoenician merchants that used them to count and do their commercial accountability.

Have you ever asked the question why 1 is “one”, 2 is “two”, 3 is “three”…..?

What is the logic that exists in the Arabic algorithms? The answer is there are angles!

Take a look at these algorithms written in their primitive form and check it up!

And the most interesting and intelligent of all...
