Tirthaji Maharaj has classified tricks to Multiply Numbers in Vedic Mathematics in Specific and General Methods. Specific Multiplication Methods can be applied when numbers satisfy certain conditions like both numbers closer to 100 or numbers closer to each other or addition of last digits of both numbers is 10, etc. While General Multiplication Methods can be applied to any types of numbers.
Depending on Specific and General Techniques, Multiplication in Vedic Mathematics are classified in the form of Sutras as below. Lets see the Vedic Mathematics Multiplication techniques.
Nikhilam Sutra (Specific Technique)
Anurupyena Sutra (Specific Technique)
Urdhva Tiryak Sutra and Vinculum Process (General Technique)
Ekayunena Purvena (Specific Technique)
Antyaordaske’pi (Specific Technique)
This is most simplest trick to multiply numbers using Vedic Mathematics. I personally like this method a lot as multiplication can be done in mind as well.
Using Nikhilam Sutra it is simpler to multiply numbers like 98 & 95, 997 & 987, 102 & 112, 995 & 1008 i.e. the numbers which are closer to power of 10. This Sutra is a Specific method of Multiplication in Vedic Mathematics which shows shortcuts to multiply numbers which are closer to power of 10 (10, 100, 1000, etc. )
This will generate 3 cases:
Numbers closer and less than power of 10. Example: 97 * 96, 994 * 992, etc
Numbers closer and greater than power of 10. Example: 102* 108, 1004 * 1012, etc
Numbers closer and lying on both sides of power of 10. Example: 102* 95, 1004 * 991, etc
This is a sub-type of Nikhilam Sutra and another vedic math multiplication trick when numbers are not closer to power of 10 but are closer to themselves. It works on concept of Working Base and then apply Nikhilam Sutra.
For Example – Multiplication of Numbers like 63 & 67.
Working Base(W.B.) concept: As the numbers (63 & 67) are closer to 60, we take working base as 60 (6*10) instead of 100, here factor is 6.
Apply concept of Nikhilam as discussed previously i.e. 63 is 3 greater than 60 and 67 is 7 greater than 60
Multiply 3 and 7 to get 21 in 2nd compartment. As base is *10, thus we need to have only 1 digit in 2nd compartment and hence need to carry forward 2 to 1st compartment.
Like Nikhilam Sutra, Cross Addition of 63 & 7 or 67 & 3 gives 70.
In Anurupyena Sutra, before adding carry forward directly to 1st compartment we need to multiply by the factor (6) and then add the carry forward. This Carry Forward (2) is added to 420
Final Answer: 4221
Same multiplication 63 and 67 can be solved by considering Working Base of 70 (10 * 7) as below.
This is another great shortcut method of multiplication using Vedic Mathematics. Urdhva Tiryak is General method of multiplication in Vedic Maths which provides shortcut to multiply any types of numbers.
It can be applied very easily to multiply 3 digit numbers, multiply 4 digits numbers and even more than 4 digit numbers.
Lets see an example Multiplication of 3 digit numbers:
Vinculum is a special method of Vedic Maths Multiplication which is used with Urdhva Tiryak whenever we have bigger digits like 6,7,8 and 9.
Vinculum is a process applied when numbers have bigger digits like 6,7,8,9. Carrying out operations like multiplication with bigger digits is time consuming and little tougher as compared to smaller digits. Hence such digits 6,7,8 and 9 are converted to smaller digits like 4,3,2 and 1 using Vinculum Process.
