Vedic Multiplication Trick for 2 Numbers Starting with Same Digits

Multiplication Method – multiplying 2 numbers starting with same digit(s)

This vedic maths trick will help you in multiplying two numbers when these numbers start with the same digit. For example 34 x 37; see their ten’s digit (starting digit) is same. Another example can be 234 x 232, see their hundred’s and ten’s digits (starting two digits) are same.

In one of the earlier post a similar method was described. In that like this trick the starting digit(s) should be same but at the same time the sum of digit at unit’s place should be 10 – please check that out – Vedic multiplication

34 x 37

To multiply 34×37, we know they are in the base 30. Hence the reference point (base) will be 30.

Step 1.

Determine how much more is 34 from 30. The answer is 4

Determine how much more is 37 from 30. The answer is 7

Step 2.

Either add 4 to 37 = 41 or 7 to 34 = 41.

The result will be same always.

Step 3.

Multiply the resultant number from step 2 by the base, which is in this case 30

41×30 = 41x3x10 = 123×10 = 1230

Step 4.

Add to the resultant of step 3 the product of the numbers obtained from step 1. This will give you the answer.

1230+ (4×7) = 1230 + 28 = 1258

 

Another example,

23 x 29

From step 1 and step 2 above, 23 + 9 = 32 or 29 + 3 = 32

From step 3 : 32 x 20 = 640

From step 4 : 640 + (3×9) = 667

One more example,

234 x 232

From step 1 and step 2 above, 234 +2 = 236 or 232 + 4 = 236

From step 3 : 236 x 230 = 54280

From step 4 : 54280 + (4×2) = 54288

using the above method can also be used for multiplying two numbers close to humdred

  1. Nice trick !
    Is there any vedic method to calculate multiplication o f2 numbers with different base ? For example : 47*34 = ?

  2. very easy trick for 294*296, here we will use the base method, here last digit adds to 10
    and the first two digits are same 29
    first step: 29*30(by adding just one to twenty nine) = 870
    second step:4*6 last digits
    and the answer is 87024

  3. very easy trick
    34*37=(33*37)+37 or (34*36)+36 by taking base total 10 method
    hence the tens digit both are 3 the same.
    so firstly we will do 3*4(by adding just one to three)
    that is 12
    second stept 3*7=21
    so 33*37=1221
    34*37=1221+37
    =1258

    1. 34 x 37 = 3 x ( 34 + 7 ) ( 4 x 7 ) = 3 x 41 (28 ) = 123( 28 ) =( 123+2 ) 8 = 1258 .The simple way of calculation of multiplication by Vedic Maths !

    1. 296*294 = (296 – 004 ) (294 – 006 ) = 3 ( 296 – 006 ) / ( 4 x 6 ) = 87024 . It’s very easy and Nice Trick !!

  4. is there any shortcut for multiplying and dividing any 3 digit no. with another 3 digit no.?

    1. please dont think of shortcuts too much. a good practice to do them in the traditional way. the shortcut of everything is only Practice Practice and Practice. best of luck !
