    On the other hand, the idea of an equation for its own sake appears from the beginning and, one could say, in a generic manner, insofar as it does not simply emerge in the course of solving a problem, but is specifically called on to define an infinite class of problems. Steiner Verlag Wiesbaden, A Latin translation is kept in Cambridge. Other papers, such as one on the determination of the direction of Meccaare on the spherical astronomy. It no longer concerns a series of problems to be resolved, but an exposition which starts with primitive terms in which the combinations must give all possible prototypes for equations, which henceforward explicitly constitute the true object of study. The Istanbul manuscript contains a paper on sundials, which is mentioned in the Fihirst.

    Rashed and Angela Armstrong write: "Al-Khwarizmi's text can be seen to be distinct not only from the Babylonian tablets, but also from Diophantus' Arithmetica.
