Hello!

I want a book that start's completely from scratch (how and why numbers were invented, how we started counting, 1 apple + 1 apple = 2 apples, etc. ) and goes up to all the maths that was invented in chronological order (algebra and geometry, calculus, linear algebra, probabilities etc!!!)

Well, it's probably impossible for one book to have all of that, so a collection of books would be fine too.

************************************************************

Also, the books must explain EVERYTHING!

For example, in the chapter of second degree equations I want to learn how did they calculate the discriminant and also the formula:

\(\displaystyle

x = \frac{-b +- \sqrt{d}}{2a}

\)

***********************************************************

Well, to be realistic in general I just want a book about Algebra and Geometry, Calculus, Linear Algebra and finally Probabilities And Statistics.

But also I want a historical book that explains how we started inventing maths from scratch.

Also don't forget what I told you inside the asterisks, it's important for me.

Also consider the books i already have as a colleague:

Calculus Michael Spivak

I also have two other books from Thomas &Finney but i don't remember which ones. But I do rember that these books are Part 1 and Part 2 and part 2 is the continuity of part 1 and starts with infinity sums.

Linear Algebra:

Linear Algebra and Its Applications

Elementary Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems

This is greek so use google translate

Unfortunately, I lost high school books about algebra and geometry.

Thank you!
