The Most Famous Document of Babylonian Mathematics: Plimpton 322. Plimpton 322 reveals that the Babylonians discovered a method of finding Pythagorean triples, that is, sets of three whole numbers such that the square of one of them is the sum of the squares of the other two.

Using Algebra to Find the Sums of Sequences Algebra can help you add a series of numbers (the sum of sequences) more quickly than you would be able to with straight addition. Adding integers, squares, cubes, and terms in an arithmetic or geometric sequence is simple with these algebraic formulas:
