Vedic Method of Multiplication: Base System of multiplication

Application: Multiplication of two numbers close to Hundred

*Case 1: Both numbers greater than 100.** *

**Rule:** You will get the answer in two parts

First part, to get left hand side of the answer: Add the difference between 100 and either of the numbers to the other number

Second part, to get right hand side of the answer: multiply the difference from 100 of both the numbers

**Example**

**103 x 104 = 10712**

The answer is in two parts: 107 and 12,* *

107 is just 103 + 4 (or 104 + 3),* *and 12 is just 3 x 4.* *

**Similarly 107 x 106 = 11342**

107 + 6 = 113 and 7 x 6 = 42* *

123 x 103 = 12669* *

(123 + 3) | (23 x 3) = 126 | 69 =12669 .* *

If the multiplication of the offsets is more than 100 then this method* *won’t work. For example 123 x 105. Here offsets are 23 and 5.* *

Multiplication of 23 and 5 is 115 which are more than 100.* *So this method won’t work.* *

But it can still work with a little modification. Consider the following examples:* *

Example 1* *

**122 x 123 = 15006**

Step 1: 22 x 23 = 506 (as done earlier)

Step 2: 122 + 23 (as done earlier)

Step 3: Add the 5 (digit at 100s place) of 506 to step 2

Answer: (122 + 23 + 5) | (22 x 23) = 150 | 06 = 10506

Example 2

**123 x 105 (Different representation but same method)**

123 + 5 = 128

23 x 5 = 115

128 | 115

= 12915

In the next post I’ll tell you about vedic multiplication, i.e., how to multiply two numbers lesser than the base (in this case 100).
