PostSubject: Mathematical Problems Solved By the Caliph Ali   Fri 6 Feb - 19:39

Here are some
Mathematical problems that Ali Razi-Allahu-Ta’ala Anhu solved while he
was Khalifa. He was known for his mathematical genius.


Enjoy reading them:

One
Day a person came to Ali Razi-Allahu-Ta’ala Anhu, thinking that since
Ali thinks he is too smart, I'll ask him such a tough question that he
won't be able to answer it and I'll have the chance to embarrass him in
front of all the Arabs.

He asked "Ali, tell me a number, that
if we divide it by any number from 1-10 the answer will always come in
the form of a whole number and not as a fraction."
Hazrat Ali Looked
back at him and said, "Take the number of days in a year and multiply
it with the number of days in a week and you will have your answer."

The
person got astonished but as he was a Mushrik he still didn't believe
Ali Razi-Allahu-Ta’ala Anhu. He calculated the answer Ali
Razi-Allahu-Ta’ala Anhu gave him. To his amazement he came across the
following results:
The number of Days in a Year = 360 (in Arabic Calendar)

The Number of Days in a Week = 7

The product of the two numbers = (360x7)=2520

Now ... 2520 ? 1 = 2520

2520 ? 2 = 1260

2520 ? 3 = 840

2520 ? 4 = 630

2520 ? 5 = 504

2520 ? 6 = 420

2520 ? 7 = 360

2520 ? 8 = 315

2520 ? 9 = 280

2520 ? 10= 252


*************************************************

One
day a person came to Ali Razi-Allahu-Ta’ala Anhu. He was planning to
ask Ali Razi-Allahu-Ta’ala Anhu such a question which would take Ali
Razi-Allahu-Ta’ala Anhu a long time to answer and because of that his
Maghrib Prayers would be
delayed. He asked, "Ali you say you know everything in the world, then tell me which animals
lay eggs and which animals give birth to their young ones"
Ali Razi-Allahu-Ta’ala Anhu looked back at him smiled and said, "The
animals who have their 'EARS' outside their body give birth to their
young ones and the animals who have their 'EARS' inside their body lay
eggs."


*******************************************************

A person was about to die, and before dying he wrote his Will which went as follows ...
"I
have 17 Camels, and I have three sons. Divide my Camels in such a way
that My eldest son gets half of them, the second one gets 1/3rd of the
total and my youngest son gets 1/9th of the total number of Camels"
After
his death when the relatives read his will they got extremely perplexed
and said to each other that how can we divide 17 camels like this ?

So
after a long hard thought they decided that there was only one man in
Arabia who could help them: "Ali Ibne Abi Taalib." So they all came to
the door of Ali Razi-Allahu-Ta’ala Anhu and put forward their problem.

Ali Razi-Allahu-Ta’ala Anhu said, "Ok. I will divide the camels as per the man's will."

He said, "I will lend one of my camels to the total which makes it 18 (17+1=18 , now lets divide as per his will"
The Eldest gets 1/2 of 18 = 9
The second one gets 1/3 of 18 = 6
and The Youngest gets 1/9 of 18 = 2
Now the total number of camels = 17

Then Ali Razi-Allahu-Ta’ala Anhu said, "Now I will take my Camel back."


This was the genius that Hazrat Ali was in his time !!!
