Can you comment on calculation tricks vs. a simple
mechanical proceedure - such as the soroban?
In particular, I'm curious if such tricks are used
such a proceedure. If they are used instead of,
are there enough tricks to handle enough cases...

"Brutal force" is sometime more effective than tricks
However as I often told on the list; if you you know ans master enough
cases/trick to give instantly the answer of a 2digit x 2digit multiplication
then a 3digit by 3digit calculation is barely more difficult;

knowing tricks for squaring all numbers ending by 5 is extremely useful to
transform a multiplication into difference of 2 squares

and squaring a 3digit number ending by 5 is childplay;
for instance 875²=(9 x 850000)+625=765625 or 8x950000 +5625

Hi there Albert,

I would be happy to train people here on High Speed Vedic Mathematics.I have
been doing this for the last 10 years and have trained thousands of students
in the field.

I would love to participate and share my knowledge with this dynamic group
of mental calculators. I would like to again invite all of you to my website
which is www.vedicmathsindia.org

Here you would know all about Vedic Math and it has some tutorials also. I
would be happy to take personal classes online for all of you.

Let me know if you guys would be interested.

Thanking you,

• Hi Gaurav, Thanks. I must admit that I m very interested. I hope I can meet you on the linee soon. But it seems your site is a commercial ones, are you

Hi Gaurav,

Thanks. I must admit that I'm very interested. I hope I can meet you on the
linee soon. But it seems your site is a commercial ones, are you teaching

let me know when, if the lesson will begin?

I had an extra question: From my elementary school, my teacher told me to do
multiplication like this steps:
for example: 654 x238
654
x 238
--------
firstly cal 8 x654 =5232
second cal 30 x654 =19620
third cal 200 x654 =130800
then add them up to get 155652

So how about in Verdic math? can you let me know an example to see how
verdic works?

Thanks.
Albert Xu

• Hi Albert, The lessons are sold online. But only for selected members of the MCWC Group will I make it Free for over 10 Hours as I am a member of this group
Message 5 of 7 , Apr 16 1:26 AM
Hi Albert,

The lessons are sold online. But only for selected members of the MCWC Group
will I make it Free for over 10 Hours as I am a member of this group myself.
These members can be chosen by Ralf. No Issues.This Program has taken us a
lot of time to prepare and understand and also will be taking time to give
the knowledge. Hence understandably the cost. There is a cost to maintain
the virtual classroom also there fore the cost.

The Method for multiplication is known by everyone perhaps. It is the
Vertically & Crosswise Method. Different schools have called it
differently.

I will be happy to discuss mental methods for square roots etc.

I will let you guys know shortly about the dates.

Many Thanks

Warm Wishes
Gaurav Tekriwal
