10000000000 = 1024 ( binary )
0010000100000011 = 1024 ( fibonacci )

I've just answered my stupid question, never mind

Re: Can you suggest six names of great mathematicians quickly?

Hi; that's great. But unfortunately, I do not understand what you mean by CGPA and A1. I though marking was out of 500.

Re: Can you suggest six names of great mathematicians quickly?

CBSE has actually changed itself a lot

CGPA means Cumulative Grade Point Average. A1 is a grade

I didn't realize CBSE utilized the GPA grading scale. Anyways, are you one of the national toppers for grade 9?
