ABSTRACT Vedic Mathematics is the name given to the system of mathematics, which is claimed to be discovered from

Vedas by Sri Bharti Krishna Tirtha. It is based on book authored by Bharti Krishna Tirtha and published in 1965

. Vedic Mathematics is based on sixteen Sutras and thirteen subsutras in Sanskrit which are claimed to have ability to solve

all modern mathematica problems. These sutras help in speedy calculations in high school mathematics. Differential equa-

tions and recurring decimals can be solved with the help of these sutas. Although the application of these sutras in different

fields has not been objected to but the critics of Vedic Mathematics object to its origin and name.

These sutras are helpful in quick calculations. For example

first sutra Ekadhikena Purvena which means one more 997-003

than the previous one is helpful in evaluating value of frac-

tions with numerator 1 and denominator a two digit number 994-006

ending with 9, like 1/19,1/29,1/39 etc. The method is as fol-

lows. We start from right hand side with digit 1. We multiply 018

it with one more than 1 that is 2 and we get second digit 2.

Now write the difference of digits cross wise either 997-006

21 or 994-003, which is 991 in both the cases and write it to the

left of already written number i.e. 018

Now multiply 2 with second digit to get third digit 4and simi-

Dr. J.N. Kapoor [11] has observed that vedic mathematics is

not depend on computation. However most of the applica-
