This 3rd century Greek mathematician wrote the standard geometric textbook that was used for nearly two millennia, 'Elements'. What was the name of this ancient Greek genius?

Correct answer:

Interesting Info:
  • 'Elements' is the most successful textbook in history, having been in use for over two thousand years. Consider: these days an average college textbook goes out of date in a year or two.
