The recent mathematical calculation that creates interest are **The Vedic Maths** because of its simplicity in solving large problems within lesser time.The calculator is our Brain .Vedic Maths trains our brain to grasp the fundamentals of the problems and helps in solving them.

So where does this Vedic Maths comes from ?

Indian religions consists of Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism and Sikhism of which the Vedic period (under Hinduism) marks the beginning of the period wherein works of Sanskrit are written.The word “Veda” means “knowledge or wisdom” in Sanskrit and these Veda’s are the regarded as the oldest sacred texts.

**Sri Bharati Krishna Tirthaji**(1884-1960) “, a scholar of Sanskrit, Mathematics, History and Philosophy rediscovered Vedic math from these ancient Indian scriptures and constructed 16 sutras and their corollaries for easy and effective calculations .

__Example:__

**Can you find a answer when you subtract 53689 from 10000 ?**

The sutra Nikhilam Navatashcaramam Dashatah ,also called as “All from 9 and the last from 10” can be used to solve the above question.**Subtract each digit of 53689 from 9 and the last digit from 10 ,you get the result as 46311.This holds true for any given numbers to be subtracted from 10, 100,1000 , etc**

__Conclusion:__

Vedic Maths can be simple and give productive results only when proper understanding of sutra is done.Most GRE/CAT questions revolve around Vedic tricks solving analytical questions within stipulated time .Also practice is key to success when you want to learn Vedic Maths
