To multiply single digit numbers using vedic math, start by writing out the problem you want to solve, with 1 number on top of the other with an equation line underneath. For example, put the 6 on top of the 7 if the problem you’re working on is 6 times 7. Then, subtract each number from 10 and write your answers next to the relevant number. In the example, you’d write 4 next to the 6, since 10 minus 6 is 4, and 3 next to the 7, because 10 minus 7 is 3. For the next step, multiply the numbers in the right-hand column, which would be 3 times 4, equaling 12. Take the second digit from your answer, the 2, and write it below the equation line, and save the 1 for the next step. Then, subtract a right column number from the diagonal left column number. For example, do 6 minus 3 or 7 minus 4, which both equal 3. Next, add the 1 you saved from earlier to your answer, which gives you 4. Finish by writing the 4 to the left of the 2 under your equation line to get you the answer to your problem, 42. For tips on how to multiply numbers close to 100, read on!
