An Indian teenager solved a 350-year-old math problem that puzzled every scientist. The boy was told during a visit to Dresden University in Germany that the problem, once posed by Isaac Newton, could not be solved. The little math genius, Shouryya Ray, determined to crack down the two particle dynamics theories.
“I just asked myself, ‘Why not?’,” Ray told the Die Welt paper.
“I didn’t believe there couldn’t be a solution,” he added.
With this novel discovery, scientists will be able to calculate the flight path of a thrown ball and also it will help them to predict how it will strike and bounces off a wall.
Ray’s father started teaching him Calculus when he was only six years old. He started solving complex mathematical problems when he was six years of age.
