I came across Vedic maths
long ago in school and I was fascinated. Most of the books on Vedic maths focus
so much on arithmetic that many people think that Vedic maths is not very
useful in the age of calculators and computers. As we grow, our connection with
any fundamental science reduces so much that we may only appreciate applied
sciences and this is unfortunate for the development of fundamental sciences
and we as humans.
Even people who
debate about Vedicness of these techniques, accept that these techniques
reduce computation time for any human and weather you call it as Vedic or
anything else it’s usefulness is not debatable. The point that I am going to
focus today is how the simple multiplication technique in Vedic maths also
explains algebraic formulae.
To understand
this better let me explain you a Vedic maths method to find a square of any
number. Let’s take an example of 47 to understand the method. The method says
square the second digit, then multiply the first and second digit and double it
then square the first digit and sum it up considering units, tens and
hundreds places. This is also explained in the calculation shown. It’s
important how you sum it up and below demonstration will explain the same.
Now just compare
above arithmetic equation with algebraic equation below and find similarity between
both of them. J
I am not sure if anyone has presented
the Vedic maths technique that way I am presenting here and at least I have not
seen it before. It’s always important to understand fundamentals behind any
technique to differentiate between a trick and a concept. This is certainly a
concept based on algebra and it is also applied to multiplication in Vedic
maths but in a simplistic way.
The best part
of multiplication in Vedic maths is that; no matter how many digits you have in
numbers you are multiplying, the multiplication does not take more than 2 or
maximum 3 rows. Now let’s see algebraic equation of multiplication and I will
let you apply it in arithmetic.
Considering above formula, you may try multiplying 39 with 67 and I
have provided the answer below for you. There are many more concepts in Vedic
maths that help mainly in algebra and arithmetic and in many more topics mostly
covering high school and little bit of calculus. Based on my experience I would
certainly urge you to learn more about Vedic maths and also teach your kids Let me know if you need help in teaching.
