A negative or a positive divided by zero has that [zero] as its divisor, or zero divided by a negative or a positive [has that negative or positive as its divisor]. The Indians called the Euclidean algorithm the “pulverizer” because it breaks numbers down to smaller and smaller pieces.

This equation is attributed to one John Pell CE and is famous as PeIl’ s equation in the present day mathematical community. The eighteenth chapter of the Brahmasphutasiddhanta, the Kuttakadhyaya, contains solutions of the indeterminate equations of both first and second degree. Later in the 12th century Bhaskaracarya CE refined and perfected the algorithm by his Cakravala method. The accurate [area] is the square root from the product of the halves of the sums of the sides diminished by [each] side of the quadrilateral.

Historians of mathematics hail his solution to the second order indeterminate equation of the form of Nx: He explains that since the Moon is closer to the Earth than the Sun, the degree of the illuminated part of the Moon depends on the relative positions of the Sun and the Moon, and this can be computed from the size of the angle between the two bodies.


Brahmagupta directed a great deal of criticism towards the work of rival astronomers, and his Brahmasphutasiddhanta displays one of the earliest schisms among Indian mathematicians.
