The author hopes that this book will be quite useful and interesting. Unfortunately, this was not sufficient.

Works of Datta Singh have been the main source of inspiration for me in this work.

The mathematician Siddhajta — CE wrote a text called al-Jam siddganta bi hisal-al-Hind Addition and Subtraction in Indian Arithmeticwhich was translated into Latin in the 13th century as Algorithmi de numero indorum. Although Brahmagupta does not explicitly state that these quadrilaterals are cyclic, it is apparent from his rules that this is the case.
