Greece He is best known for his work THE ELEMENTS He is a GREEK MATHEMATHECIAN The Elements Euclidean Algorithm divided into 13 BOOKS: the first 6 are on GEOMETRY 7, 8,and 9 are on NUMBER THEORY book 10 is on EXODUS' THEORY of Irrational Numbers books 11, 12, and 13 all concern SOLID GEOMETRY and end with a discussion of the properties of the five regular polyhedrons Euclid's ELEMENTS are remarkable for the clarity with which the theorems and problems are selected and ordered It is a mathematical and geometric treatise consisting of 13 books It is a collection of definitions, postulates (axioms), propositions (theorems and constructions), and mathematical proofs of the propositions It is referred to as the most successful and influential textbook ever written It is the process of computing for the greatest common divisor (GCD) of two integers It is named after the Greek mathematician Euclid, who described it in Books VII and IX of his ELEMENTS also called the Unique Factorization Theorem or the Unique-Prime-Factorization Theorem It states that any integer greater than 1 can be expressed as the product of prime numbers in only one way "The laws of nature are but the mathematical thoughts of God." "He must make a gain out of what he learns." "There is no royal road to geometry." "In right-angled triangles the square on the side subtending the right angle is equal to the squares on the sides containing the right angle." made possible by: DIANE MAE INFANTE CLARICE ALBURO Fundamental Theory of Arithmetic THANK YOU FOR WATCHING!
