Abstract
U radu su opisana najvažnija matematička dostignuća Egipćana i Babilonaca te je navedeno da se matematika počela razvijati zbog praktičnih ljudskih potreba. Zatim se upoznajemo s njihovim načinom zapisivanja brojeva i brojevnim sustavima kojima su se koristili. Također je kroz brojne primjere prikazano kako su zbrajali, oduzimali, množili i dijelili, te zapisivali razlomke.
