Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Numbers,But was Difficult to UnderstandWe can't live without numbers. We need them in our dailychores, big and small. But we carry in us a certain fear onumbers and are never confident about using them.Shakuntala Devi, the internationally famous mathematicalwizard, makes it easy for usand interesting. This book contains all we always wanted to know aboutnumbers but was difficult to understand, and which wasnowhere available. Divided into three parts, the first willtell you everything about numbers, the second someanecdotes related with numbers and mathematicians, andthe third a few important tables that will always help you.Shakuntala Devi popularly known as "the humancomputer," is a world famous mathematical prodigy whocontinues to outcompute the most sophisticatedcomputers. She took only fifty seconds to calculate thetwenty-third root of a 201 digit number. To verify heranswer, a computer in Washington programmed with over13,000 instructions took ten seconds longer. ShakuntalaDevi firmly believes that mathematics can be great fun foreverybody.
