WHO INVENTED ZERO.......!!!
1.Who invented the # zero.
2.Where it was invented.
3. What happened.
4.Why they invented it.
5.How they invented it.
AnswerThe number zero was invented independently in India and by the Maya. In India a decimal system was used, like ours, but they used an empty space for zero up to 3rd Century BC. This was confusing for an empty space was also used to separate numbers, and so they invented the dot for a zero. The first evidence for the use of the symbol that we now know as zero stems from the 7th century AD. The Maya invented the number zero for their calendars in the 3rd century AD. The number zero reached European civilization through
the Arabs after 800 AD. The Greek and Roman did not need the number zero for they did their calculations on an abacus. The name 'zero' comes from the Arabic language.
AnswerIt was invented by a Hindu mathematician Aryabhatta in India before 400 BC on the basis of a vedik chant as below-
पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदं पूर्णात् पूर्णमुदच्यते।
पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते॥
That is Absolute, This is Absolute, Absolute arises out of Absolute
If Absolute is taken away from Absolute, Absolute remains. OM Peace, Peace, Peace.
Answerthe number zero was one of the last numbers invented beacause the ancient egyptions never used them and not many other countries at the time used maths.
AnswerWe are so accustomed with seeing the perfect circle, the zero that we cannot imagine it had to be invented. In fact, the invention of zero was a real revolution.
In Babylon (modern Iraq), arabs had invented the "zero" during the 4th century BC. But their numbering system was not transmitted to other people because of its peculiarity: the first group (that of the units) was not made of 10, but 60 figures. That corresponded to our system of time counting: one minute has 60 seconds, one hour has 60 minutes
There were also arabs, that used the zero as we know today, between words. to make sure you understood that the space was really empty there, they put a little raised dot. Well dots are easy to miss, so to make it a little blacker, the scribe would wiggle his pen around a little, which sometimes left a little hole in the middle of a small circle.
So we see that the arabs used the function of the zero that we know today, but they did not say it was a number.
One century after the Mayans, around the year 600 AD, Hindu savants invented too the figure "zero". They also invented the position numbering. Arabs learned this figure system from India. They even called them "Indian figures". During the 10th century, these numbers (0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9), slightly changed, were taken over by the Europeans from the Arabs, like many other important items.
