This is the most common, yet very interesting trick of Vedic Maths. Using this technique you can find the square of any number ending in 5 very easily. Given below is the step by step explanation of this squaring technique.
Let us take a 2 digit number ending in 5,
We'll get our answer in 2 parts. The right hand side of the answer will always be 25. The left hand side will be the number other than 5, multiplied by it's successor (next higher integer).
= 4 x (4+1) | 25
= 4 x 5 | 25
Vedic Multiplication Trick
This method of multiplication from Vedic Maths will make it very easy to multiply two numbers when sum of the last digits is 10 and previous parts are the same. For example multiplications like
23x27 : Sum of Unit digits i.e. 3+7 = 10; Remaining number i.e. 2 is same in both numbers
46x44: Sum of Unit digits i.e. 6+4 = 10; Remaining number i.e. 4 is same in both numbers
112x118: Sum of Unit digits i.e. 2+8 = 10; Remaining number i.e. 11 is same in both numbers
291x299: Sum of Unit digits i.e. 1+9 = 10; Remaining number i.e. 29 is same in both numbers
135x135: Sum of Unit digits i.e. 5+5 = 10; Remaining number i.e. 13 is same in both numbers
Current affairs or general awareness or general knowledge section is as important as any other section in almost all government job competitive examinations. To improve our overall awareness there are lots of options like internet, newspapers, magazines, etc. However, there are very few options for exam specific preparation.
The most striking part of this section is that there cannot be any prescribed format to prepare oneself for it. Fortunately, there are some wonderful books which can help you to sail through these competitive examinations. I am listing the most trusted books on current affairs and general awareness below.

Remainder Theorem & its application
We have all learnt the Remainder Theorem in class 10 (now i am in 11) that when you divide a polynomial f(x) by x-c the remainder r will be f(c). Now let’s see how we can use this theorem in other situations.
Let’s consider the following Product: 65 x 32.
We want to find out what is the remainder when it is divided by a number say 7.
To solve such questions we just need find the individual remainders when the numbers are divided by the divisor.
Get ready for another trick which will help in finding out the square root of a 4 or 5 or 6 digits number mentally.
Before going further on the method to find the square root, please make a note of the following points –
1) Square of a 2-digit number will have at max 4 digits (99^2 = 9801). That implies if you are given with a 4 digit number, its square root will have 2 digits. Hence, square root of 5 or 6 digit number will be a 3 digit number.
2) This trick works only for perfect squares, it will not work for any arbitrary 4 or 5 or 6 –digit. Check out the method of finding square root of number which is not a perfect square
3) It works only for integers
Now let us start with the trick to find square root in vedic maths way.
Vedic Mathematics is the name given to the ancient mathematics system. The “Bharati Krsna Tirthaji” from the Vedas rediscovered it and according to him, all the mathematics is based on the 16 sutras. These are also known as word formulas. Below are mentioned some of the tips for the students to learn easily and become a master of Vedic math.
It is all about the numbers
Whether numerical or word formulas both of them certainly employ the use of the numbers. Make yourself master of the numbers. Learn the general multiples of all the numbers and make a habit to spend your free time with numbers only. Practice as much as you can and you will be on the right track. You can also figure out something so that you come across these numbers repeatedly. You can paste wallpaper in your room, make some numerical figure as your desktop and subscribe to numerical magazines.
Try to Grip from the Fundamentals and then move forward
Have an approach, which will make youthe basics and fundamentals strong. Once you have a grip over the basics it means half of the work is done. Try to learn what it is all about the “Sutras” and the “Sub sutras” from the starting to the end. What does it all mean? Just solving the examples will not be sufficient but you have to make sure that you have the thorough knowledge of every aspect.
Practice as much as you can
Figures always need practice and you have to make them as your part and parcel. Try to practice every exercise you get your hand on and just solving the problems will not work check the answers also. If you get wrong answers, make sure you look for the right solution and method for a specific problem. There is no end to practice try as many problems as you can since Vedic math is meant to shorten your normal problem solving time pay special attention to any shortcuts you come across and learn them by heart.
Try to Get some Good References
It is always recommended to follow some trusted books. It is always true that right teaching and guidance can do wonders and you have to search both of these for you to get into the right direction. You can follow some good reference books and take some guidance in the form of internet, magazines, friends and family members.
Some Mind and Brain Exercise can do wonders
Since Vedic math is all about the mind, you can learn a few exercises so that your brain is fresh while you start studying the Vedic math.In addition, you can learn how to refresh your mind after several intervals.
Keeping in mind the above tips will certainly give you an edge over the others in learning Vedic math and you can solve lengthy and complicated calculations beating the calculator after learning this math.

Numbers never fail to surprise us. This post talks about one such amazing property of number 22.
Select any three-digit number with all digits different from one another. Write all possible two-digit numbers that can be formed from the three-digits selected earlier. Then divide their sum by the sum of the digits in the original three-digit number.
You’ll always get the same answer, 22. Isn’t this wonderful!
For example, take the three-digit number 786. The 2 digit-numbers which can be made using the digits 7, 8 and 6 are 78, 87, 76, 67, 86, 68. Hence sum = 78 + 87 + 76 + 67 + 86 + 68 = 462. Sum of digits of 786 = 7+8+6 = 21. Then 462/21 = 22
This will be true for any three-digit number with all digits different.
The Six Thinking Hats method may well be the most important change in human thinking for the past twenty three hundred years
I’ve just quoted the first line of the preface of the book “Six Thinking Hats” by Edward de Bono. The Six Hats method is an amazingly simple technique based on the brain’s distinct ways of thinking.
Brainstorming sessions or meetings are unavoidable part of our life. However, mostly these produce no results and waste lot of time. This technique, named as Six Thinking Hats by its founder Edward de Bon, is thinking from different perspectives about a decision to be made. This forces you to think outside your habitual way of thinking and helps you to get an overall view of a situation.
An Intriguing Mixture and Alligation Puzzle
We have two one litre bottles. One contains quart of milk and the other quart of water. (1 quart = 0.9463 liters) We take a tablespoonful of milk and pour it into the water. Then we take a tablespoon of this new mixture (water and milk) and pour it into the bottle of milk. Is there more milk in the water bottle, or more water in the milk bottle?
To solve the problem, we can figure this out in any of the usual ways— often referred to as “mixture and alligation problems”—or we can use some clever logical reasoning to find out the problem’s solution.
