#### 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

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

I know this is an old thread, but if I’m reading your example here correctly, 1000 – 83 becomes 1000 – 083 = 917, your method falls apart. Unless you also mean changing the first two digits in 1000 to a 9. Then 1000 becomes 900, and everything works.

Ur doing great dude to tell world greatness of vedic math. bt pllzzzzz can u tell me some tricks of reasoning ( all kinds especially big questions ) those asks in IBPS clerk exam OR other clerks entrances. in this ( dec 2011 test ) feels very tough cause absence of time and my confidence also is poor, probably maximum marks of i can get is only 100 ( means no chance to got selected )…but t dont want to fail again so plzz my main problems is Of Reasoning and also of these types of questions I.E. 2659-1766=?+ 8597/9416 , 178556.2563+8965.125+259+32655.289=? ( possibly time we have to about 35 seconds )…Agar bhaai inke liye kuchh kar do to next clerk ki job pakki
