Who gave Pythagoras Theorem: Who gave Pythagoras Theorem
Mathematics means that most students run away from mathematics, but some of its principles have been such that made mathematicians immortal. One of these is Pythagoras Theorem i.e. Pythagoras Theorem. Interestingly, however, the theorem attributed to this great Greek mathematician and philosopher, there are now indications that it was given centuries before Pythagoras.
Already given Thiram?
While teaching in Crotone, Italy, Pythagoras was known for teaching mathematics as well as philosophy. They are called Pythagoras Theorem (in a triangle of 90 degree angle a2 + b2 = c2, where a and b denote the length of the shorter side and c the length of the longest side. However, citing a 3,700-year-old article found in Iran in 1894, a mathematician has claimed that the theorem was given much earlier, and that ancient Greece had not even begun to develop by then. The article named Si.427 was kept in a museum in Istanbul.
What was the use?
Dr. Daniel Mansfield of the University of New South Wales, Australia, studied it and told BBC Science Focus magazine that it dates back to the Old Babylonian civilization between 1900-1600 BC. He has told that this is the only such evidence of that period with the help of which the boundaries of land were understood. The legal and geometric details of the land are seen in this article. With the help of this theorem, accurate rectangles with 90 degree angles can be made. The same is seen in Si.427.
Will history be affected?
Mansfield says that hardly anyone would have expected these numbers to be used in the Babylonian civilization. Maths was being used for practical questions at that time. This discovery also has a profound impact on the history of mathematics. They say that this happened thousands of years before the birth of Pythagoras. Then the land started becoming private and people started placing conditions on it. It was then used for the division of land.
