Origin of the word
The word Algorithm comes from the name of the 9th century Persian Muslim mathematician Abu Abdullah Muhammad Ibn Musa Al-Khwarizmi -- often considered as the "Father of Algebra". The word algorism originally referred only to the rules of performing arithmetic using Arabic numerals, but evolved via European Latin translation of Al-Khwarizmi's name into Algorithm by the 18th century. The use of the word evolved to include all procedures for solving problems or performing convoluted tasks!!!
