It should be noted that this value for p is among the most accurate used up to this time.

Next, Aryabhata provides a method for finding common denominators for adding up fractions. These particularly small enterprises lack access to markets and hence do not have predictable income and growth 3. Aryabhatya is the section of the Aryabhatiya that is most highly criticized by later Indian commentators since it delves into the rotation of the Earth in depth.

Some historians speculate that this is also the town of his birth, but there is no consensus on the matter.
