Vedic Maths: Tutorial 1

Use the formula ALL FROM 9 AND THE LAST FROM 10 to perform instant subtractions.

  • For example 1000 - 357 = 643

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

So the answer is 1000 - 357 = 643

And thats 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 - 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
