What is the name of the Chinese alphabet that is used to sol

Post by Diane » Mon Sep 20, 2004 12:46 am

My math teacher posed a question wondering what is the name of the Chinese alphabet used today to solve math equations for algebra? The Americans use the Roman alphabet (a-z) to substitute numbers for letters to solve algebra equations. What do the Chinese use? Thank you,

That's an interesting question!

Chinese use the same Roman alphabet as you do for the math equations. Specially, X, Y, Z. We call it "wei zhi shu", which means unknown number.
