C. From Europe As well as in China and the Arab world, the method of multiplication using a tableau is also found in Europe, and has a long history which extends from the Middle Ages right up to the beginning of the twentieth century. The earliest known European example of the use of a tableau appears in a Latin manuscript of about 1300 in England in the reign of Edward II (figure 1). This method is found later in a number of arithmetic books from the Renaissance period, like the Treviso Arithmetic [26], published anonymously in Treviso in 1478 (figure 2) and Luca Pacioli's Suma of 1494 (figure 3).

LOn-l, which provides a new dividend on this rank. We shall simulate this algorithm for the example proposed in the text, namely dividing 900 by 8. Our abacus contains three 'vertical' columns, numbered from the left, and four 'horizontal' ranks, numbered from the top down. Initialisation: put the difference (10 - d), here 2, in the first rank of the right hand column. Then place the divisor d, here 8, on the second rank of the same column. Finally, put the dividend on the third rank, with the units digit in the right hand column.
