The texts were subsequently "proof-read" by comparing the different recited versions. One method of constructing the altar was to divide one side of the square into three equal parts using a cord or rope, to next divide the transverse or perpendicular side into seven equal parts, and thereby sub-divide the square into 21 congruent rectangles.

The bricks were then designed to be of the shape of the constituent rectangle and the layer was created. To form the next layer, the same formula was used, but the bricks were arranged transversely. After dividing the quadri-lateral in seven, one divides the transverse [cord] in three. In another layer one places the [bricks] North-pointing.
All these inferences are made by the officiant as he recalls the formula from his memory.
Ancient Indian Leaps into Mathematics
Consequently, many mathematical works began to be written down in manuscripts that were then copied and re-copied from generation to generation. India today is estimated to have about thirty million manuscripts, the largest body of handwritten reading material anywhere in the world.
The literate culture of Indian science goes back to at least the fifth century B. It was probably a matter of style of exposition.
