His book on arithmetic is the source of interesting legends that assert that it was written for his daughter, Lilavati. Bhaskara II studied Lilavati's horoscope and predicted that she would remain both childless and unmarried. To avoid this fate, he ascertained an auspicious moment for his daughter's wedding and to alert his daughter at the correct time, he placed a cup with a small hole at the bottom of a vessel filled with water, arranged so that the cup would sink at the beginning of the propitious hour. He put the device in a room with a warning to Lilavati to not go near it. In her curiosity though, she went to look at the device and a pearl from her bridal dress accidentally dropped into it, thus upsetting it. The auspicious moment for the wedding thus passed unnoticed leaving a devastated Bhaskara II.

I was reading a book on ancient mathematics problems from Indian mathematicians. Bhaskara II, who is popularly known as Bhaskaracharya, was an Indian mathematician and astronomer from the 12th century. Lilavati is his treatise on mathematics, written in A beautiful maiden , with beaming eyes, asks of which is the number that multiplied by 3 , then increased by three-fourths of the product, divided by 7, diminished by one-third of the quotient, multiplied by itself, diminished by 52, the square root found, addition of 8, division by 10 gives the number 2?

Now, Let the number be n. Then applying initial part of the problem on it. Waw, this is an interesting problem with beautiful soln. What a knok from bhaskara! I realy hats of u. What a great indian! The long expression you posted in above post is called First Expression FE. I got another first expression which cannot be solved using fast tricks.

Who was Bhaskaracharya? What is Lilavati? Thank you:. Mera Bharath Mahaan……. Did you try my Labs page? I am adding new codes and experiments to it. See Labs.

## Mathematical Treasures - Lilavati of Bhaskara

Thank you for visiting my blog! Thursday, June 21, Lilavati. This story, like many other stories, may not be able to tell us what really happened. I am only going to try to tell you the story I had heard as a child. I have read many different things which are different from the original story I had heard, but here, I will stick to the original one that my teacher had once told me. Only the people involved would know what really happened, and they would have taken their little secrets silently to their graves.
