Malay mathematics based on Terengganu Inscription

Abdul Razak Salleh

Abstract


We exhibit the Malay Mathematics in the 14th century Terengganu Inscription dated 702H, that is 1303. There are several mathematical elements that we classify as Malay numbers (cardinal and ordinal), units of measurement, position (location and position in a family), elements of logic, and time (day, month and year). We also give an equivalent amount of fine imposed to convicts as listed in the inscription.
