I want to study the history of numbers - the way we assigned symbols to numbers and then invented place values to make addition,subtraction easier. It should also deal with binary numbers, octals, decimals etc. And then how multiplication , division is defined.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Basically i need a book about numbers and how various operations are defined. It should explain it in the most rigorous and deepest way.
