50p Charles Babbage Computer

Charles Babbage was an English mathematician who invented the first computer. He also designed the world’s first programmable mechanical calculator.

Charles Babbage was born in 1791 in London. His father was a wealthy banker, and his mother was a well-educated woman. At age 14, he began studying mathematics at Trinity College, Cambridge University. In 1810, he became interested in calculating machines, which were used for mathematical calculations. He developed a machine that could calculate tables of logarithms, trigonometric functions, and algebraic equations. This device was called the Analytical Engine. It was never built because of its complexity.

What did he invent?

Babbage’s invention was the first computer ever made. He wanted to build a machine that would help people do math faster. He believed that computers would make life easier and more efficient.
