I have always impressed on my students the transformative power of quick and efficient calculation skills. Speed calculation is not just a valuable tool for acing exams; it’s a life skill that can make everyday tasks easier and more enjoyable.

One of the ways in which we can learn to calculate fast is Vedic Maths. The beauty of Vedic Maths lies in its simplicity and the elegant ways it turns complex calculations into manageable steps.

In this blog, I will introduce you to five fascinating speed calculation tricks from Vedic Maths that will help you tackle math with ease and enthusiasm. At the end of this blog, I will also tell you from where you can download a Free Vedic Maths PDF for extra practice.

5 Speed Calculation Tricks That Can Make You Love Math

In our Speed Calculation Free Course, I have covered several powerful Vedic Maths techniques that can transform the way you and your children approach math. These tricks are designed to make calculations faster, easier, and more enjoyable. If you want to learn them in detail and also download the free Vedic Maths PDF, enroll in the free course.

Let me now give a brief overview of the five key topics we explore in the course:

1. Mental Addition: How to Add Fast Through Place Value

Mental addition can be significantly sped up by using place value to break down numbers into more manageable parts. Let say, for a 2-digit number, this method involves adding the tens and units separately, then combining the results. Let me give you an example


To add 37 and 48:

  • Break down the numbers: 37 (30 + 7) and 48 (40 + 8).
  • Add the tens: 30 + 40 = 70.
  • Add the units: 7 + 8 = 15.
  • Combine: 70 + 15 = 85.

By practicing this technique, you can perform mental addition quickly and accurately. Our course includes detailed videos and practice questions to help you master this skill.

2. Mental Multiplication: How to Multiply Numbers with 11 Mentally

Multiplying numbers by 11 can be done very fast using a simple trick. This involves adding the digits of the number and placing the result between them.


To multiply 36 by 11:

  • Separate the digits: 3 and 6.
  • Add them together: 3 + 6 = 9.
  • Place the result between the original digits: 396.

This method works for any two-digit number and can be a real time-saver. The Vedic Maths PDF, that I mentioned earlier, has many questions and solutions of this nature. Practice from the PDF, it will help you a lot.

3. Learn to Square in Seconds: How to Square Numbers Ending with 5 in Seconds

Squaring numbers that end in 5 is very easy if you know this technique. The technique involves simple multiplication and a basic addition. Let me give you an example.


Let’s say we want the square of 35:

  • The last 2 digit of the square will always be 25 in such case
  • Now to find the remaining digits of the square, you need to multiply the remaining digit or digits of the number with the next number
  • In this case 3 is the remaining number. Multiply 3 with 4 and you get 12. Hence your square is 1225

So Simple! Isn’t it? If you want to watch more such questions being solved by me, you can check out this video.

4. Square of 2-Digit Numbers: How to Square a 2-Digit Number in Seconds

Squaring any two-digit number can be simplified by using a Vedic Maths technique called Urdhava Triyak. Let me give you an example to make it clearer.


Let’s say we want to square 47

  • Write the unit digit as the unit digit of square of 7.
  • So, square of 7 is 49, keep 9 in units place and take 4 carry
  • Now multiply 4 by 7 twice & add carry to it⇒ (2 x 4 x 7)+4 = 60
  • Now keep 0 at tens place and take 6 carry
  • Now, square 4 and add the carry 6. You get 22
  • You answer is 2209

Voila! Your square is done. Obviously, you need to practice to increase your speed and accuracy, but once you get it, your confidence will soar. For practice you can refer to the Vedic Maths pdf inside the course.

5. Fast Subtraction: Using the Nikhilam Method to Subtract

The Nikhilam method is a Vedic Maths trick for fast subtraction, especially useful when dealing with large numbers.


To subtract 678 from 1000:

  • Subtract each digit from 9 and the last digit from 10: 1000 - 678 = 322.

This approach simplifies the process of subtraction, making it quicker and less error-prone.

I have explained all of these concepts in detail in the Speed Calculation Course. Moreover there is a bonus concept too. I am not going to tell you that. Watch by Yourself and be pleasantly surprised.
