The symbols for 1 to 9 in the hindu-Arabic Numeral System evolved from the Brahmi numerals. buddisht inscriptions from around 300 BC use the symbols which became 1, 4 and 6. One century later, their use of the symbols which became 2, 7 and 9 was recorded. The first universally accepted inscription containing the use of the 0 glyph is first recorded in the 9th century, in an inscription at Gwalior in Central India dated to 870. However, by this time, the use of the glyph had already reached Persia, and is mentioned in Al-kwahrizme s descriptions of Indian Numerals. Indian documents on sopper plates , with the same symbol for zero in them, dated back as far as the 6th century AD, abound
