Hello Ahmed,

please correct your knowledge of crediting "zero" to arabic invention. Ask any indian and they will tell you who invented "Zero". Please note it was develpoed and invented by an Indian Mathematician Brahmagupta in 6th century. In 9th century Arabia started using it since there was trade between Indian peninsula and Arabia. And so on it reached Europe via Spanish Moors.

thanks and regards

Greg
