The ancient Egyptians knew addition and subtraction, as they knew multiplication and division; using the system to double to get the answers. They were also aware of the roots of quadratic, and calculate the area of the triangle. And used to calculate the area of a circle close to the value of the firm (i). And knew also a kind of primitive engineering; and may have known the theory of Pythagoras: As I was able to draw an arc.
