Vedic Math - Trick 1

Use the formula ALL FROM 9 AND THE LAST FROM 10 to perform instant subtractions.

    * For example 1000 - 357 = 643

      We simply take each figure in 357 from 9 and the last figure from 10.

      So the answer is 1000 - 357 = 643

      And thats all there is to it!

      This always works for subtractions from numbers consisting of a 1 followed by noughts: 100; 1000; 10,000 etc.

    * Similarly 10,000 - 1049 = 8951
    * For 1000 - 83, in which we have more zeros than figures in the numbers being subtracted, we simply suppose 83 is 083.

      So 1000 - 83 becomes 1000 - 083 = 917

Re: Vedic Math - Trick 1

Hi radha55;

This is the vedic technique that I like for multiplication.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Vedic Maths - Trick 2

Using VERTICALLY AND CROSSWISE you do not need to the multiplication tables beyond 5 X 5.

    * Suppose you need 8 x 7

      8 is 2 below 10 and 7 is 3 below 10.
      Think of it like this:

Image3.gif

      The answer is 56.
      The diagram below shows how you get it.

Image4.gif

      You subtract crosswise 8-3 or 7 - 2 to get 5,
      the first figure of the answer.
      And you multiply vertically: 2 x 3 to get 6,
      the last figure of the answer.

      That's all you do:

      See how far the numbers are below 10, subtract one
      number's deficiency from the other number, and
      multiply the deficiencies together.
    * 7 x 6 = 42

      Here there is a carry: the 1 in the 12 goes over to make 3 into 4.

Here's how to use VERTICALLY AND CROSSWISE for multiplying numbers close to 100.

    *
      Suppose you want to multiply 88 by 98.

      Not easy,you might think. But with
      VERTICALLY AND CROSSWISE you can give
      the answer immediately, using the same method
      as above.

      Both 88 and 98 are close to 100.
      88 is 12 below 100 and 98 is 2 below 100.

      You can imagine the sum set out like this:

Image6.gif

      As before the 86 comes from
      subtracting crosswise: 88 - 2 = 86
      (or 98 - 12 = 86: you can subtract
      either way, you will always get
      the same answer).
      And the 24 in the answer is
      just 12 x 2: you multiply vertically.
      So 88 x 98 = 8624
