• Vedic Mathematics is a collection of Techniques/Sutras to solve mathematical arithmetics in easy and faster way. It consists of 16 Sutras (Formulae) and 13 sub-sutras (Sub Formulae) which can be used for problems involved in arithmetic, algebra, geometry, calculus, conics.
• Vedic Mathematics is a system of mathematics which was discovered by Indian mathematician Jagadguru Shri Bharathi Krishna Tirthaji in the period between A.D. 1911 and 1918 and published his findings in a Vedic Mathematics Book by Tirthaji Maharaj
• Veda is a Sanskrit word which means ‘Knowledge’.
• Using regular mathematical steps, solving problems sometimes are complex and time consuming. But using Vedic Mathematic’s General Techniques (applicable to all sets of given data) and Specific Techniques (applicable to specific sets of given data), numerical calculations can be done very fast.

Mathematics enthusiastic always have the questions What is Vedic Mathematics and What are the . Techniques/Sutras in Vedic Mathematics. But when they try to go through the Vedic Mathematics books they get confused for some of the techniques, concepts and to understand this they search on internet. I found that not much information of Vedic Mathematics Sutras/Techniques is present over the internet.

By referring original book of Vedic Mathematics by Tirthaji Maharaj, I have tried to mention the Vedic Mathematics Sutras in a simpler and with step by step approach. I have solved lot of examples to make Vedic Mathematics Tricks understandable.

## History Of Vedic Mathematics

Shri Bharathi Krishna Tirthaji Maharaj was born in March 1884 in the Puri village of Orissa state. He was very good in subjects like mathematics, science, humanities and was excellent in Sanskrit language. His interests were also in spiritualism and mediation. In fact when he was practicing meditation in the forest near Sringeri, he rediscovered the Vedic sutras. He claims that these sutras/techniques he learnt from the Vedas especially ‘Rig-Veda’ directly or indirectly and he intuitively rediscovered them when he was practicing meditation for 8 years.

Later he wrote the sutras on the manuscripts but were lost. Finally in year 1957, he wrote introductory volume of 16 sutras which is called as Vedic Mathematics and planned to write other sutras later. But soon he developed cataract in both of his eyes and passed away in year 1960.

## How Vedic Mathematics is Beneficial and What are the Advantages of Vedic Mathematics

Vedic Mathematics can definitely solve mathematical numerical calculations in faster way. Some Vedic Math Scholars mentioned that Using Vedic Maths tricks you can do calculations 10-15 times faster than our usual methods. I agree this to some extent because some methods in Vedic Mathematics are really very fast. But some of this methods are dependent on the specific numbers which are to be calculated. They are called specific methods.

Lets take 1 example to see the Power of Vedic Mathematics.

#### Division Shortcuts in Vedic Mathematics:

1/19 is a Rational Number which forms a recurring decimal number and which recurs the sequence after every 18 digits.

How much time will you take to divide 1/19. Using Ekadhikena Purvena Sutra of Vedic Mathematics, It would take just 7-8 seconds to calculate exact decimal number in just 1 line.

Like this, I have mentioned more Divisions in Vedic Mathematics

Gaurav Tekriwal, Founder of vedicmathsindia.org on Quora, mentioned below The Use of Vedic Mathematics.

• More than 1700% times faster than normal Math: this makes it the World’s Fastest.
• Eradicates fear of Math completely. So If your child has Math-Phobia High Speed Vedic Math is a Fun-Filled way to do Math and arises interest in your child.
• Much Improved Academic Performance in School and Instant Results. Just see the first exercise and believe it for yourself. Go over the examples given in the tutorials you would be amazed.
• Sharpens your mind, increases mental agility and intelligence.
• Increases your speed and accuracy. Become a Mental Calculator yourself.
• Improves memory and boosts self confidence.
• Cultivates an Interest in your for numbers.
• Develops your left and right sides of your brain hence using intuition and innovation. It has been noted that Geniuses have been using the right side of the brain to achieve exceptional results.
• Easy to master and apply. You just need the knowledge of tables to learn this.

Vedic Maths Techniques/Sutras have the maths tricks for fast calculation and can be used in exams like CAT, CET, SAT, Banking Exams, etc.

Let’s have a look at some of the techniques used in Vedic Mathematics.

#### Multiplication Techniques/Shortcuts Using Vedic Mathematics:

It has been a very controversial subject especially with the name of the book. Many Indian scholars thinks that name of this book should be different than “Vedic Mathematics” for various reasons. But we wont go into these details, rather use the same name which is famous all over the world and make use of techniques which are truly amazing, simple and most importantly less time consuming.

## 5 Must Know Vedic Math Trick for your Kid.

Vedic Mathematics is derived from a Sanskrit word “Veda” which means “Knowledge”. It is a collection of techniques/sutras to solve mathematical problems in a faster and easy way.

Vedic Mathematics is derived from a Sanskrit word “Veda” which means “Knowledge”. It is a collection of techniques/sutras to solve mathematical problems in a faster and easy way. It has 16 Sutras ( Formulae) and 13 sub-sutras ( Sub Formulae). These sutras help to solve any problem related to arithmetic, algebra, geometry, calculus, conics. It is considered that by using Vedic Math tricks one can solve math problems 10 to 15  times faster than any other usual method.

These tricks are faster and easier and if done in their proper manner give accurate answers. They are very helpful for kids in their regular school work calculations and also while cracking exams like CAT, CET, SAT, Banking Exams, etc.

TRICK NO:1  Multiplying numbers by 5

Therefore we get, 8640248 x 5 = 43201240

Therefore we get, 6386 x 5 = 31930

Simply, consider the given number to be ‘A’

Therefore,          A X 5 = A X 10/2

which is again  = A/2 X 10

TRICK NO:2   Multiplying any number by 11

For e.g.

Step I : Last digit remains same.

Step II : Add every digit starting from end to the previous one, move from right to left.

Step III : First digit remains same.

Therefore we get, 1353 x 11 = 14883

TRICK NO:3  [T20:20]  * Applied when both the numbers are more than 10 and less than 20.

For e.g.           13 x 16

Step I : Sum of first number and last digit of second number or, last digit of first number and second number.

Step II : Answer of Step I x 10

Step III : Multiply last digit of both the numbers.

Step IV : Add the solutions of Step II and Step III.

Therefore we get, 13  x  16  = 208.

TRICK NO:4  [X + T10]  *  Applicable when sum of last digit of both the numbers gives 10, and first digit of both the numbers are same.

Step I: Multiply last digit of both the numbers.

Step II: Multiply the first digit of both the numbers with the digit that comes after that i.e., 7 comes after 6 so 6×7 in the above case.

Therefore we get, 63 x 67 = 4221.

TRICK NO:5  Multiplying numbers by 12.

Step I: Last digit will be double.

Step II: Multiply the previous digit with 2 and add it with the next digit. If there is any previous remainder add it with that.

Step III: First digit of the number is reused and kept same in the last step.

Therefore, we get, 1624 x 12 = 19488.

These were few simple Vedic Math tricks that make calculation faster and easier. These tricks are far more systematic, simplified and unified than the conventional system and thus give accurate answers.  The fact still remains that not even 20% of schools today, teach students the tricks of Vedic math. Although you might find a few online lessons or after school classes like Speed Maths, (an Aloha initiative) to impart the knowledge of this amazing age old methodology of arithmetic. Application of these tricks gives the student a lot of flexibility, fun and satisfaction. It not only helps them to save their precious time in examination hall, but also acts as a checking tool. The only key is a regular practice and application in all questions they come across. Once you teach a trick to your child just make sure he/she applies it everywhere possible. You will see wonders happening soon!
