MahabharataYutham duration of 18days.

Pandavas had 7Akshahini (units) of warriors.
Ghawravas had 11 Akshahini of warriors.
Total 18 Akshahini of warriors


1Chariot ,1 elephant, 5Soldiers, 3Horses =1patthi
3 patthi =1 senamukham
3 senamukham = 1Kulmam
3 Kulmam =`1 ghanam
3ghanam =1vaakhiani
3vaakhini =1bruhutalai
3 bruhutalai =1samu
3 samu =1 anikini
10 anikini =1akshini

That means 21,870 chariots,+ 21,870 elephants,+1,09350 soldiers +65,610 is one akshini

so 18 akshini is +2,36,09,600. from both side.
charrots: elephants: horses : soldiers
21870 : 21870 :65610 :109350
1 : 1 : 3 : 5
