So far I’ve seen examples with numbers close to each other like ” 18×19″, “27×28″, “34×35″.

How about separating them a bit more like “45 x 73″, or so. So far doing it the old way seems faster because there are only 2 steps: multiplying single digits and adding single digits.

The base method does addition, subtraction, multiplication, carrying a number (just like in the “old math”), and multiplying “again” by the base number when necessary.

If it ain’t broken (it works fine), don’t fix it.

Use a calculator, at 5:45 mins in he states that (456×5=2256) which isnt correct. The correct answer is (456×5=2280) !!

how do you get the base?

You just contradicted yourself. Hence MULTIculture.

why ? we multiply 260 with 10

bbbbbborrrrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggg

I rather not use this method. For 27 x 81 I prefer using general multiplication method

How do we do it if the numbers arent close? Say, 27×81????

ese método es para multiplicar 25 x 27 así números cercanos pero no para 26 x 98. you have to do better the nex time. but thanks.

advert in the corner distracting me from my hindu religion.

i am enemy to jew, jesus and islam and evolution, i love multiculture and multi culture must never be questioned.

Hi, I covered 10 miles in 25 minutes 17secs on my racing bike some years ago, anybody know what that is in miles per hour? (my maths are hopeless)

this is very boring…………………

awesom ..

You’ve selected the correct notional base ie 50 but the actual base is 10. here r the steps

1) 48 -> -2 & 54 ->+4 (subtracting from base)

2) 52 // -8 (either 48 + 4 or 54 – 2 // -2 x +8)

3) since 50(notional base is 5 times actual base of 10, multiply 52 by 5

260 // -8

4) multiply left hand side by 10 (base) and add it to the right hand side

2600 + (-8) = 2592

I try this

48*54 (Base = 50)and I got answer = 5208

and i try that with calculate then i got 2592

Did i am doing wrong ?

can u make division times table using big numbers please and good explanation and can u

21 -9

23 -7

14 / 63 — where 6 is the carry that will be added to the first part

x3 — multiply the first part to the base

________

42/63

=483

I wouldnt use this method for the this problem since it is much simple with cross multiplication.

2 1

X

2 3

2×2 / 2×3+2×1/ 3 x1

=483

if u take base 30 for

21*23

-9 , -7 = 63

either 21-7 or 23-9 = 14

14*3 = 42

now units digit 3

others are 42+6 =48

483 total ^^

hard cause which base to take is a problem

in ur example of 21*23 i took base as 30 n ans was wrong

sir A bit difficult to do this in mind

I used base 60. Find the difference between 87-60=27 and 67-60=7. Work out 27×7=189, so the number at the end would be 9 as the video would suggest. You also have to carry the 18 part from 189. You can do 87+7 or 67+27, either way, you will get 94, so that is placed next to the 9; so far I had 949. But 94 has to be multiplied by 6 (because 6 is 60 (our base) divided by 10 (the real base)). 94×6=564. we also have to add the 18 we obtained earlier to 564; 564+18=582. Put next to 9 to get 5829 .

this method is for nos.with diff 1 and also for those nos. which are nearby to nos. like 10 20 ……..300…….500,600etc

thank you so much

SUPER. This is faster than the Vedic maths when the digits are near the base. THANKS

how would you solve 87 x 67?

far far easier than long multiplication, without a doubt
