**History of Zero**• Hyperlinks • Introduction • Historical facts • Extra information • Fibonacci • How Zero has help us all in life • Summary • URL By: Maxford Mlilima**Introduction**• Hyperlinks • Historical facts • Extra information • Fibonacci • How Zero has help us all in life • Summary • URL This PowerPoint will help you with the history of Zero and how it has helped us in life like for example Math and Money and more and More Facts abut Zero and some people you didn’t even know but you will know.**Historical Facts**Zero was spread by Arabians to the Europe and there on it was spread all over. Zero was invented in India by Indian mathematicians in 5th century and was widely used it in calculations. The sum of 0 numbers is 0, and the product of 0 numbers is 1. The glyph for the zero digit was written in the shape of a dot, and consequently called bindu (dot). The dot had been used in Greece during earlier ciphered numeral periods. home**Extra Information**Egyptians The Egyptians had a base 10 system of hieroglyphs for numerals. There was no sign of zero. They had seven separate symbols (hieroglyphs) for one unit, one ten, one hundred, one thousand, one ten thousand, one hundred thousand, and one million. Greeks The Greeks used 2 systems of numbers, With this system the Greeks were the first to show the use of a multiplier by making symbols like this. The Greeks also used a numeral system based on the 27 letters in the Greek alphabet. In order to differentiate between numeral and letter, when letters are written to represent numbers, a bar was put over the symbol to remove it from the from its letter. home**FIBONACCI**Fibonacci he was named after Leonardo of Pisa. he was who brought Zero to Europe and he was from Italy. But he was born in 1170 and died in 1250 (aged around 80). home**How has Zero helped our life**Zero has helped us a lot in many ways I think 0 is the most important number in the whole of number systems, I think this because life would be hard with out Zero and even in Math we would struggle but people don’t know how zero has helped us. home**Summary**In this unit I have leant a lot about Zero which I never knew before and how it has helped us in life. I think with out it life will be hard for the whole world and I think that we need to show this PowerPoint's to other people because many people don’t really know much about Zero all they know is that it’s a number. They really need to know. Now I know much about Zero then back then when I just send that Zero is just a number now I know how it has helped us in life and how it all started and I also leant a bit of more facts home**Links**http://us.123rf.com/400wm/400/400/vectomart/vectomart1206/vectomart120600002/13926480-illustration-of-glowing-number-zero-on-abstract-background.jpg http://www.life360.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/fail4.jpg http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/0_(number) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fibonacci_number http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fibonacci_number https://www.google.com/#output=search&sclient=psyab&q=historical+facts+about+Zero&oq=historical+facts+about+Zero&gs_l=hp.12...0.0.2.93.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0..0.0...0.0...1c..12.psyab.JIG0q6x27uE&pbx=1&fp=1&biw=1378&bih=809&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&cad=b http://jwilson.coe.uga.edu/emt668/emat6680.f99/sheehy/NGCSU/Sum04/History2/historynotes2.htm http://allamazingfacts.com/Amazing-Facts-about-the-number-Zero/380.php http://us.cdn3.123rf.com/168nwm/spaxia/spaxia1009/spaxia100900050/7775625-fiery-number-zero.jpg home
