If we dig into India's history, many unbelievable things are been taken out. For instance, we all know Pythagoras theorem

c2 = a2 + b2. (c square = a square + b square)

if a = 5 and b = 12

=5*5 + 12*12

=25+144

=169

= √ 169

= 13

c = 13

a2 + b2 = c2

9*9 + b2 = 15*15

81 + b2 = 225

b2 = 144

b = √144

b = 12

This is know to all. Now a Tamil poet has written this algorithm like a poem.

This poem is summarised as follows

= 4-(4/8) + (3/2)

= 5

It seems to be perfect. No square root required. Though it seems to be perfect it is not accurate. See more examples below.

a = 24 b = 7 c= (a - a/8) + (b/2)

= 24-(24/8) + (7/2)

= 24.5 c= 24.5 ≠ 25

a = 15 b = 8 c= (a - a/8) + (b/2)

= 15-(15/8) + (8/2)

= 17.125 c= 17.125 ≠ 17

The above two examples clearly shows that t…
