It was the first permanent IBM installation in the world to do scientific work Comrie's Greenwich setup had not been permanent. In lateEckert presented a paper on this work to the American Astronomical Society.
He used it to prove the binomial theoremPascal's triangleand the sum of integral cubes.

Also discussed the quadrature of the parabola and the volume of the paraboloid. His arithmetic explains the division of fractions and the extraction of square and cubic roots square root of 57,; cubic root of 3,in an almost modern manner.
He became the first to find general geometric solutions of cubic equations and laid the foundations for the development of analytic geometry and non-Euclidean geometry. He also extracted roots using the decimal system Hindu-Arabic numeral system. He also gave the pair of amicable numbers and that have also been joint attributed to Fermat as well as Thabit ibn Qurra.
His contribution to decimal fractions is so major that for many years he was considered as their inventor. Although not the first to do so, al-Kashi gave an algorithm for calculating nth roots, which is a special case of the methods given many centuries later by [Paolo] Ruffini and [William George] Horner.
His works include The Key of arithmetics, Discoveries in mathematics, The Decimal point, and The benefits of the zero.
The contents of the Benefits of the Zero are an introduction followed by five essays: He also wrote the Thesis on the sine and the chord and Thesis on finding the first degree sine. It applies arithmetical and algebraic methods to the solution of various problems, including several geometric ones.The modern era, prior to the rise of mathematical logic, is an alogical and a largely unontological period.
It opens with the Humanists; in their view, if logic has any usefulness at all, it is only as a set of rules for everyday arguments: it is an inferior sort of rhetoric, as Valla put it.
