The history of math’s success
Already 2500 years ago in the ancient Persian Empire this aid for calculation was used. As well the famous greek philosopher reported about a census at about 300 BC, in which such a calculation table was used. Their own calculation table the Romans developed then to the so called hand abacus. After the Middle Ages the calculation table got to the western cultures. Even still today the hand abacus is used in a few regions of China and Russia. Here it is interesting, that with these calculation tables the upper row resembles the one of the Roman abacus.
