## Vedic Math Multiplication

In Vedic methods, there are some easy ways of multiplying numbers by specific numbers, which make the whole multiplication process a very easy and interesting one.

In this online vedic math learning tutorials of multiplication you will be learning three different methods of doing multiplication

## Multiplication by Specific Numbers

#### Multiplication by '11'

The application of sutra is very easy. We just have to add only the last two digits. By using this sutra we are doing, addition instead of multiplication and we get the same answer as we would have got if we had multiplied the number by 11.

We use the sutra

## "Antyayoreva"

## "Only the last two digits"

## Multiplication by Specific Numbers

#### Multiplication by '12'

While following this sutra here too we are doing addition instead of multiplication and we still get the same answer as we would get if we had multiplied the number by '12'.

We use the sutra

## "Sopantyadvayamantyam"

## "The ultimate & twice the penultimate"

## Multiplication by Specific Numbers

#### Multiplication by '9'

In whole number series '9' is the most interesting number therefore the multiplication of '9' is also very interesting. If we have a number to be multiplied by a number consisting of only '9's we use this sub sutra.

We have categorized the multiplication by '9' in three types

We use the sutra

## "Ekanyunena Purvena"

## "The ultimate & twice the penultimate"

## Multiplication by Base Method

#### Base Multiplication

We have different methods of multiplication for different types of numbers. In this method we will learn multiplication of numbers close to the bases (which have small complement). We know that bases are the numbers which have '1' followed by zeros, like 10, 100, 1000 etc.

If the numbers to be multiplied are close to any base, either more or less, then our multiplication becomes very easy and very fast. Both the numbers can either be more than the base or both can be less or one can be

We use the sutra

## "Nikhilam Navatascaramam Dasatah"

## "All from nine and last from ten"

## Multiplication by Base Method

#### Working Base Multiplication

When both the numbers are not close to a convenient base, but are close to a multiple of the base. We take a multiple or sub-multiple of a suitable base like 10, 100, 1000 etc, as our 'Working Base' and then do our multiplication taking the working base into account.

We use the sutra

## "Anurupyena"

## "Proportionately"

## Multiplication by Vertical and Crosswise

#### Cris - Cross System of Multiplication

This is the traditional system of multiplication taught to students in schools. In Vedic math too, we have a similar system but it helps us to get the answer much faster. This system is also a universal system and can be used for any combination of numbers of any length. The application of this system are manifold.

We use the sutra
