Vedic Mathematics -Addition
HiI hope I am able to write a decent tutorial.We will start with addition and subtraction and our aim is achieve mastery over mental calculating addition and subtraction of 2 digit numbers than progress to threedigit numbers and finally to four digit numbers.What you may read below may not appear as Vedic Mathematics and truth is it mightnow be Vedic Mathematics so why am I writing about it? Well simply because this ishow I was taught by my teacher to make my concept stronger, as following methods play important role in Multiplication , Squaring and Division.
is the most important number for you. Simply speaking when we 93 it is simply 9x 10 + 3x 1= 90 + 3 = 93What I am writing below are not any rules and are just few basic concepts.When we are in tiny tots (for me it was like more than 23 years ago) we were taughtto add and subtract.34+ 69= meant we would first 9 + 4 = 13 than carry 1 ten’s place than add 3+ 6= 9add 1 which we carried over hence 9 would become 10 and finally we would get103.In VM we do it other way. We draw this line separator that divides number intounits, tens , hundred and so on . Basic aim is to add numbers of same value together i.e. digit at ten’s place with digit at ten’ s place , unit at digit’s place at with units atdigit’s place .Instead of going from right to left we go left to right i.e. first add those digit that arecoming first i.e. in this example digit at ten’s place than we add digit at unit’s place.To do that we draw a line between 3 and 4 in 34 and 6 and 9 in 69 like this 3 / 4and 6 / 9. Instead of adding 4 and 9 first we add 3 and 6 first 3 + 6 =9 now we add 4+ 9= 13, Since I told u 10 is like king of numbers in VM so when you adding 3 + 6you are basically adding 30 + 90 so 3 + 9 means 90 not 9.When you add 4 + 9 you are adding digit at unit’s place so 4 x 1 = 4 and 9 x 1 = 9so from addition 4+ 9 = 13 and 13 is 10 x 1 + 3x 1= 10 + 3 = 13. So we write 3
