The Xia Dynasty was finally ended, when its last emperor Jie was forced to step down by his own people because of his tyrannical way of leading, and with the help of Tang he was successfully overthrown and that was the marked end of the reign of the Xia Dynasty and the precedence of the Shang Dynasty.
Xia Dynasty
The calendar system was continued to be practiced and improved during the Shang dynasty.

Elementary counting was also started and the act of fortune telling was already widely practiced and was very much popular for the people.

Despite of this improvement made under King Tang’s leadership, the Shang Dynasty still fell when its last King known as Zhou took his term. Just like Jie, the last emperor of Xia Dynasty, Zhou was very cruel, tyrannical and selfish that eventually lead to the rebellion of the his people against him causing the Shang Dynasty to perish after 600 long years of leadership.
