Khipu Notes
Ascher Databook Notes:
This is one of several khipus acquired by the Museum in 1907 with provenance Ica. For a list of them, see
UR1100
.
Some values on the khipu are sums of values on later consecutive pendants. Namely:
P
_{1}
= P
_{3}
+ P
_{4}
P
_{4}
= P
_{5}
+ P
_{6}
P
_{6}
= P
_{9}
+ P
_{10}
+ P
_{11}
P
_{7}
= P
_{8}
+ P
_{9}
+ P
_{10}
+ P
_{11}
One value is the sum of the squares of values on later consecutive pendants:
\[ P_{2} = \sum\limits_{i=4}^{11} P_{i}^2 \]
