Thanks for submitting this.
We had someone ask for a solution using the India method in the last few weeks.
We also had someone present this as the method to be used without naming it.
Glad to see the name joined with the method.
Do you have an example of this method being used?
An interesting method for solving quadratic equations came from India. The steps are:
(a) Move the constant term to the right side of the equation
(b) Multiply each term in the equation by four times the coefficient of the x^2 term
(c) Square the coefficient of the original x term and add it to both sides of the equation
(d) Take the square root of both sides
(e) Set the left side of the equation to the positive square root of the number on the right side and solve for x
(f) Set the left side of the equation to the negative square root of the number on the right side of the equation and solve for x
