@animeirl The entire collective of arab mathematicians who developed the notation are collectively rolling in their graves.

@Deiru it was actually invented by Indians but was exposed to Europe via Arab traders so that's we call them Arabic numbers though tbf the distinction between Arab, European and Indian is somewhat arbitrary anyway.

@animeirl Like I opened Wiki (not the best source, I know), and it says that first it came from india to aram world, and then big boys with big brains kind of shaped it into something else.

@animeirl Either way we have a lot of dead people rolling it seems.
