This is just tip of the iceberg; thousand of mysterious things are left in Ethiopia to be discovered. Art, science, religion, culture… Proudly Ethiopian.

makes perfect sense to my westernized mind. When you halve a number on one side you are dividing by 2 so multiplying the other side by 2 would keep the equation balanced…. 6 * 12 = 3 * 24 (via rules of linear transformations). since halving an odd number results in the removal of one unit you must add back 1 group of it's counter part …. 11/2 = 10/2 when you ignore the remainder so you must account for 11 – 10 groups before moving on.

I am aware of this method for about 2 decades.I am not sure if ethiopianas are the ancient people of south Indians as they look alike and good in maths like Ramanujan..

the ""what"" column? Harboring?

And here I thought that the Egyptians came up with this method.

LOL!! Africans beat whites to math and even applied to today's computer!!

proud to be ethiopian

Love it

Why call it "bizzare" because you can't comprehend it? Eurocentrist condescending crap.

Amazing. I am Ethiopian, why do I suck in math?

Very cool!

and the european will still insist the african invented nothing

amazing, but bizzare and yet correct
