How to use the Trachtenberg method for Speed addition:
Trachtenberg method is one of the fastest ways of doingrapid mathmentally. It isa very interesting method and learning and practicing it is going to be fun. Nowlet me show you how to add long set of complex numbers using this technique ina simple way.
Step 1:
To use this method, write down all of them one below the other as we doin traditional method. If decimal points are present, they needs to be alignedcorrectly one below the other.
Step 2:
Keep adding the columns down as in traditional method. But when thetotal exceeds 11in any of the column, mark the column where the sum exceedsand reduce the sum by 11.Continue with the reduced value. You can perform thisstep from either left or right.58*
Mark this number as the sum (5+8) exceeds 11. Continue with the new reduced sum (13-11 = 2)
325+8 = 13. This sum exceeds 11. Mark this column and reduce the sum by 11.13-11 = 2. Reduced sum is 2. Now continue with the reduced sum. 2+3+2 = 7.Final reduced total is 7.
Step 3:
Draw a line below the numbers and write down the final reduced sum.
Step 4:
Below this sum, write down the number of marks you have done for each

columns when sum exceeds 11. Let’s call this row as the marks row. In the aboveexample which we saw, the number of marks (given as *) is 1.
Step 5:
We get the final result by adding the reduced total and the number of marks in
L-Shape
starting from right to left. We add the neighbor on the right inthe bottom row of marks row. If there is a remainder, it is carried to the leftcolumn. This is illustrated below.Note that the marks are given as *X X X X XX X* X X* XX* X X X X*X X* X* X* X5 2 4 8 6 [This is the reduced by 11 total]1 2 1 2 3 [This row denotes the number of marks in each column]8 5 8 3 9 [Sum of L shaped Total]Now let’s see how to determine the L-shaped sum.
Step 1:
The rightmost column does not have a right hand neighbor. So it issimply calculated as 6+3 =9
Step 2:
The L-Shaped sum for the next column is calculated as82 3
