As you can see; the topic “Algebra: an Islamic Contribution to the West” is very general. And you have to to do a NARROWLY FOCUSED study of the topic, the narrower the study is, the better grade I will get, and if I get a low grade, I will have to do a revision. So please pay attention and do your best.
I trust you, so please do it as perfect as you can.
the paper has to be (5-6) pages
