    Ah Algebra, how I hate you so. Also stop telling us to find your “x.”

    Two bees? Or not to be a bee? Depending on the grade curve, can two B’s add up to one A? Aieeeeeeeeee!

    Funny thing is, Algebgra was developed by the Arabs. Maybe they hated us even then.

    OK Hamlet, since both terms are positive and you are adding, the answer will be positive, so you need no sign. The answer is… 2b

    re: kerovan
    Algebra was kept alive by the Arabs and Irish monasteries when Rome collapsed. It was discovered by the Greeks and used extensively by the Romans.
    While it’s non-PC, I can’t think of a single invention the Arabs had that wasn’t taken from someone else. Which is what most cultures did, actually.
    Examples are “Arabic numerals” which were invented in India. The zero was also invented there, about 800 years before the mayas. Various navigational and engineering devices pioneered by the Romans were adopted by the Arabs. Inventions like concrete and city hygiene were not adopted, surprisingly.
    What blows me away are the small steam engines the greeks had and what we would consider advanced gearing. Look up the “Antikythera mechanism”. It calculated astrophysical data.
    We didn’t surpass the surgical knowledge of the Romans until the 1800s. The practical application of sewers and city water supplies was something not rediscovered until the 1800s. first thing the Roman legions did when they had occupied an area was to build lavatories and baths. The cleanliness employed prevented the cholera, dysentary, and similar diseases so prevalent since man came along.

    Al-Jabar was an arab development. It was an extension of what the Indians were doing, Yes the concept of Zero was an Indian invention.
    Most cultures borrowed information from other cultures and did so in such a way that it does get difficult to pinpoint who exactly discovered a mathematical concept.
    The most famous dispute was between Newton and Leibniz.
    But then we wonder who first came up with the process of separating iron fromits ore or who first invented wireless radio.
    Don’t belittle Arabic intellectual accomplishments. I reckon you want to say Saladin was not a great military commander or that Sitting Bull was not a great politician.
    Your prejudiuce is showing my friend.

    @Colonel Claus

    Algebra was invented by the Persians(actually Ar’An) with inspiration from the Indians. Persians are most assuredly NOT Arabic, or even Semitic.

    This is supposed to be Hamlet? I thought it was Elric of Melniboné.
