In this context, this work analyzes eight different sixteenth-century arithmetic books to know the different types of representations included in them. For this, it has used the historical analysis supported by the content analysis of textbooks. The results obtained show diversity between the representations included in each book. Even though verbal and numerical ones are part of every one of them, graphic representations vary from one book to another.
