# Brahmagupta

What is now known as the brahmagupta-fibonacci identity has an engagingly simple form, curious history and unexpected applications $\begin{align} (a^{2}+b^{2})(c^{2}+d^{2})&=(ac+bd)^{2}+(ad-bc)^{2}\\ &=(ac-bd)^{2}+(ad+bc)^{2} \end{align}$ it is believed that the identity was first annunciated by diophantus (the 3rd century bc) who wrote in his arithmetica (book iii, problem 19) [stillwell, p.
