Hey Maverick

Thats certainly great work mann..... You took a lot of effort in writing that long post..... But its seems to be exactly same as given in the book which is titled "The Trachtenberg System on Speed Maths" the book with a black cover.... Compared to Vedic Maths I found it much better to comprehend...... Probably PGitess could refer it for some more mind boggling calc shortcuts. A discussion on the book here would uncover some more easier methods of calculating.......

What say?


Govi...........

ur adding method consumes lot of time... 9421 + 3114 + 1382 i wud do it this way... first all thousands... 9 + 3 + 1 = 13*1000=13000 then all hundreds 4 +1 + 3 = 8 * 100= 800 tens ... 2+1+8= 11*10=110 units... 7 adding up 13917... such additions can be done by obser...
ur adding method consumes lot of time...

9421 + 3114 + 1382 i wud do it this way...

first all thousands...
9 + 3 + 1 = 13*1000=13000
then all hundreds
4 +1 + 3 = 8 * 100= 800
tens ...
2+1+8= 11*10=110
units...
7
adding up 13917...

such additions can be done by observation which further inc speed. with practice this can be done in less than 10 secs.
