Write the two important works done by Bhaskaracharya-I. 


SOLUTION
  1. Bhaskaracharya I gave the Pell’s equation $$ 8x$$ ? $$ + 1 = y^2 $$. In this equation $$ x = 1 $$and $$ y = 3$$ which can be written $$(x, y) = (1, 3)$$ , we can solve many equations like $$ (x, y) = (6, 17)$$.
  2. For many centuries, the approximate value of % was considered 14. But Bhaskara-I did not accept this value and believed that n has an irrational value which later proved to be true. Some of the contributions of Bhaskara I to mathematics are: Numbers and symbolism, the categorization of mathematics, the names and solution of the first degree equations, quadratic equations, cubic equations and equations which have more than one unknown value, symbolic algebra, the algorithm method to solve linear indeterminate equations which was later suggested by Euclid, and formulated certain tables for solving equations that occurred in astronomy.
