#### Learn Amazingly Fast **Vedic Mathematics Subtraction**

Very often we have to deduct a number from numbers like 1000, 10000, 100000 and so on.

This **Vedic Maths Subtraction** method found as sutra in ancient vedas, is given below is very useful for such subtractions.

Memory Trick:** ALL FROM 9 AND THE LAST FROM 10**

Use the formula all from 9 and the last from 10, to perform instant subtractions.

For example 1000 – 357 = ? (**subtraction from 1000**)

We simply take each figure in 357 from 9 and the last figure from 10.

Step 1. 9-3 = 6

Step 2. 9-5 = 4

Step 3. 10-7 = 3

So the answer is 1000 – 357 = 643

And that’s all there is to it!

This always works for subtractions from numbers consisting of a 1 followed by noughts: 100; 1000; 10,000 etc.

Similarly 10,000 – 1049 = 8951 (**subtraction from 10000**)

9-1 = 8

9-0 = 9

9-4 = 5

10-9 = 1

So answer is 8951,

For 1000 – 83, in which we have more zeros than figures in the numbers being subtracted, we simply suppose 83 is 083.

So 1000 – 83 becomes 1000 – 083 = 917

Corollary: If last term is 0, keep that last term as 0 and subtract the last non Zero term from 10 .

Illustration: 10000 – 920 = 10000 – 0920 = (9-0) (9-9) (10-2) 0 =9080

Illustration: 100000 – 78010 = (9-7) (9 – 8 ) (9- 0) (10 – 1) 0 = 21990
