### Arabic maths

Hi all who know the Arabic mathematics! I am curious to know, how in Arabic mathematical texts the mathematical expressions and formulae are written (among other text which goes from right to left)? Are they written from left to right as in European and Chinese languages?

### Re: Arabic maths

Although the text is written from right to left the numerals are always written from left to right with the highest digit power to the left. The arabic texts might use the arabic numerals (1234567890) or might use the hindu numerals.

And mathematical formulas among the text?

### Re: Arabic maths

Text is always right to left but formulas are always
left to right - same as Western usage.
