“Zero and its operation are first defined by [Hindu astronomer and mathematician] Brahmagupta in 628,” said Gobets. He developed a symbol for zero: a dot underneath numbers. “But he, too, does not claim to have invented zero, which presumably must have been around for some time,” Gobets added.

## Who gave 0 to the world?

By AD 150, **Ptolemy**, influenced by Hipparchus and the Babylonians, was using a symbol for zero () in his work on mathematical astronomy called the Syntaxis Mathematica, also known as the Almagest.

## How did Aryabhata invented zero?

Brahmi lipi was used widely to write Sanskrit slokas in ancient India. If you see number system in the Brahmi lipi. … Aryabhatta invented zero that means he thought that **some number like zero exists** and one can represent Ten as Symbol of one as ten digit and Symbol of zero as unit digit.

## Why is the Indian concept of zero significant?

The invention of zero was **a hugely significant mathematical development**, one that is fundamental to calculus, which made physics, engineering and much of modern technology possible. In Gwalior, a congested city in the centre of the India, an 8th-Century fort rises with medieval swagger on a plateau in the town’s heart.

## Who is the father of zero?

## Who invented math?

Beginning in the 6th century BC with the Pythagoreans, with Greek mathematics **the Ancient Greeks** began a systematic study of mathematics as a subject in its own right. Around 300 BC, Euclid introduced the axiomatic method still used in mathematics today, consisting of definition, axiom, theorem, and proof.

## Who invented 1?

Hindu-Arabic numerals, set of 10 symbols—1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0—that represent numbers in the decimal number system. They originated in **India** in the 6th or 7th century and were introduced to Europe through the writings of Middle Eastern mathematicians, especially al-Khwarizmi and al-Kindi, about the 12th century.

## What if 0 was not invented?

Without zero, **modern electronics** wouldn’t exist. Without zero, there’s no calculus, which means no modern engineering or automation. Without zero, much of our modern world literally falls apart.
