The decimal system, specifically the use of decimal place value and numerals, is believed to have originated in ancient India around the 3rd century BCE. The concept was introduced by mathematicians like Aryabhata and Brahmagupta in their influential works. This system of numerals eventually spread to other parts of the world and is now widely used globally.
