RMP 3135 WERE ALGEBRA PROBLEMS RECORDED IN EGYPTIAN FRACTIONS THAT STRESSED THE 2/N TABLE. ROBINSSHUTE, 1987, OFFFER TRANSLITERATION INTRODUCTIONS IN THEIR INTERSTING "RMP" BOOK PUBLISHED BY THE BRITISH MUSEUM PRESS AND DOVER PUBLICATIONS.
RMP 3538 WERE HEKAT PARITIONING PROBLEMS RECORDED IN EGYPTIAN FRACTION ... THAT STRESSED THE 2/N TABLE ... AND UNITY PROBLEMS.
FOR EXAMPLE,
http://rmp36.blogspot.com/
NOTE THE SOLUTION OF 53/53 = 2/53 + 3/53 + 5/53 + 15/53 + 28/53
AHMES SCALED EACH RATIONAL NUMBER TO A SOLVABLE COMPOSITE NUMBER AND A CONCISE EGYPTIAN FRACTION SERIES. NOT FOLLOWING AHMES' CLUES LEADS RESEARCHERS ASTRAY. EVERY CLUE MUST BE CONSIDERED TO FAIRLY DECODE EACH ANCIENT PROBLEM AS FIRST RECORDED.
