History of Abacus
The Abacus is an ancient mathematical instrument used for calculation. The Abacus was one of the world's first real calculating tools. The word Abacus is derived from the Greek word "Abex", meaning counting board. The original types of Abacus were dust-covered stone slates with a stylus used for marking numbers. Later this evolved into a slate with grooves where rocks or other counters would be placed to mark numbers. This magical tool has been termed as the "mother of modern computers", and is universally used for solving arithmetic functions like additions, subtraction, multiplication and division.
