Vedic Maths Tricks

Smart tricks that your child should learn to speed up math calculations. Is your child struggling with math problems? If so, this article will open Pandora’s box for you because we will share some of the simplest Vedic Maths tricks for solving complex problems.

What is Vedic Mathematics?

Vedic Maths is a present from the past given to us by renowned Indian scholars. It is an ancient form of mathematics that was rediscovered from the Vedas by Shri Bharti Krishna Tirthaji between 1911 and 1918. It includes a plethora of techniques for making math problems more effective and efficient. Long and tedious calculations become simple when using this method.

We can calculate the answer with pinpoint accuracy in less than a minute. This helps with not only arithmetic, but also algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, and applied mathematics. Vedic Math techniques are so simple that even the most difficult questions can be solved mentally.

What Are The Benefits Of Learning Vedic Mathematics?

Using Vedic Math Tricks, you can solve any difficult/time-consuming JEE problem or ICSE/ CBSE Math problem instantly. Furthermore, the beauty of Vedic Maths is that you can solve a problem mentally just by using it. If you come across polynomial functions and quadratic sums in a higher class in CBSE or ICSE Board, knowing Vedic Maths will help you beat the difficulty level of those sums.

Who Is The Father Of Vedic Maths?

Vedic mathematics simplifies arithmetic operations, and these formulas and concepts are gaining popularity around the world. Shankaracharya Bharti Krishna Tirthaji, known as the ‘Father of Vedic Mathematics,’ discovered the ancient method of solving Mathematics problems.

These Vedic Maths Tricks are extremely beneficial in passing any competitive exam. So here are some of the Vedic Maths tricks we mentioned:

Squaring Of A Number Whose Unit Digit Is 5 (Vedic Maths Tricks)

You can quickly find the square of a two-digit number ending in 5 using this Vedic Math trick. Whatever syllabus you follow, whether CBSE or ICSE, you will undoubtedly encounter such sums.

For example Find (55) ² =?

Step 1. 55 x 55 = . . 25 (end terms)

Step 2. 5x (5+1) = 30

So our answer will be 3025.

Well, if you have understood the process try to find the square of 25 & 85.

Multiplication of a number with 5 (Vedic Maths Tricks)

It’s simple to remember 5 tables. However, as the smaller numbers become larger, the calculation becomes more difficult. This Vedic maths technique will assist you in resolving this issue.

You must divide any number by two in this case. If your answer is a whole number, subtract 0 (zero digits) from the end. If the number is not a whole number, add 5 to the end and disregard the remainder.

For example: 8422 x 5 =?

Step 1: 8422 / 2 = 4211

Step 2: It is a whole number, so add 0

The answer will be 8422 x 5 = 42110

Let’s try another: 7337 x 5 =?

Step 1: 3773 / 2 = 3668.5

Step 2: This is a fractional number, so we will ignore the remainder and add 5 at the end.

The answer will be 7337 x 5 = 36685

Time to check your knowledge:

Now try —- 1234 x 5, 123 x 5

Subtraction From 1000, 10000, 100000 (Vedic Maths Tricks)

Tell me how long it will take you to subtract a number from a multiple of 100, such as 1000, 1000, or 10000. Is there a time limit of one minute or less? Leave that aside and see if you can calculate with this new formula and see if it’s simple and shortens your calculation time!

For example: 1000 – 876 =?

We simply subtract each figure in 876 from 9 and the last figure from 10.

Step 1. 9 – 8 = 1

Step 2. 9 – 7 = 2

Step 3. 10 – 6 = 4

So, the answer is 1000 – 473 = 124

How to Multiply any 2-digit numbers between 11 to 19 (Vedic Maths Tricks)

If you’re like us and can’t remember the tables after ten, this trick will come in handy. After enough practice, you will be able to calculate the results quickly. This type of trick has a total of four steps to solve.

Step 1: Add the unit digit of a smaller number to the larger number.

Step 2: Multiply the sum result by 10.

Step 3: Multiply both numbers’ unit digits.

Step 4: Add both the numbers (which were involved in steps 1 & step 2).

For example: Take 2 numbers like 12 and 15.

Step 1. 15 + 2 =17

Step 2. 17*10 = 170

Step 3. 2*5 = 10

Step 4. Add the two numbers, 170+10 and the answer is 180

Dividing A Large Number By 5 (Vedic Maths Tricks)

Tell me how you normally divide a large number by five. And how long does it take you to solve such problems?

Here’s the problem: divide 2128 by 5. Start the timer before you begin.

In 2 seconds, you’ve completed your task? Ok! Is it only 4 seconds?

No? So, the next time you divide a number, use this Vedic Trick and keep track of how long it takes you to solve the sum.

1st step. Multiply the number by 2

2nd step: Move the decimal point to the left.

3rd step: Left side of the decimal point is your answer.

For example: 245 / 5 =?

Step 1. 245 * 2 = 490

Step 2. Move the decimal: 49.0 or just 49

Let’s try another: 2129 / 5

Step 1: 2129 * 2 = 4258

Step2: Move the decimal: 425.8 or just 425

Now you try to solve 16951/5, 2112/5, 4731/5

Multiply Any Two-digit Number By 11 (Vedic Maths Tricks)

This Vedic Maths trick will allow you to complete multiplication in under 2 seconds. So, let’s see how you can use this Vedic Trick to reduce your calculation time.

For example:

32 x 11

32 * 11 = 3 (3+2) 2 = 352

So, the answer is: 32 * 11 =352

Another Example:

52 x 11 = 5 (5+2) 2 = 572

Now try 35*11, 19*11, 18*11.

Multiplication Of Any 3-digit Numbers (Vedic Maths Tricks)

Suppose you want to multiply these 2 numbers: 306 and 308

Step 1. Now subtract the unit place digit from the actual number.



Step 2. Now select any (1st or 2nd) number and add the unit digit of the other number


Step 3. Now we will multiply the product we got in step 2 and step 1; 314×300 = 94200

Step 4. Unit digits of both the numbers are 8 & 6. The product of these 2 numbers: 8×6=48

Step 5. Last step: 94200 + 48 = 94248

So our final answer 306 x 308 = 306 is 94248

Solve these sums using the same method and feel the difference- 808*206, 536*504, 408*416.

Find The Square Value (Vedic Maths Tricks)

Using the Vedic Maths Trick, finding the square of a number is simple. Simply follow the steps below:

Step 1: Select a base that is closer to the original value.

Step 2: Determine the numbers different from the base.

Step 3: Subtract the difference from the original figure.

Step 4: Take the result and multiply it by the base.

Step 5: Multiply the result of the above point by the product of the square of the difference.

If you look through any competitive exam paper, you’ll notice that numerous Math problems can be solved quickly and easily using these Vedic Math Tricks. You can use these Vedic Math tricks not only for competitive exams like Olympiad, KVPY, and JEE but also in your regular school studies to improve speed and accuracy. Lots of practice is required.

These tricks may appear complex or difficult at first, but with practice, they will perform admirably when you begin your calculation. Leave a comment and tell us whether you found these tips to be useful or not!
