It’s the mind game…

579387 x 75347 = ?
Can anyone out calculate this in less than 10 seconds without the help of a calculator?
I challenge you. You can’t do it……
Oh Please!!!
Please don’t faint seeing these numbers. Even I used to faint when used to I see big numbers to calculate. I know it’s the same for many out there. When I was a student, numbers used to chase and scare me in my dreams. My mathematics teacher was a regular visitor in my dream, who used to come with a big scale in her hand asking me to solve the problems. Trigonometry and algebra used to be my worst nightmare. I had math phobia but now no big numbers can scare me. I learned a small trick recently and now I don’t run when I see numbers.
No, no, don’t get confused. I don’t have anything to do with mathematics and neither am trying to teach you mathematics. But I thought I will share a bit of what I learned recently.
Lately, I get to know about Vedic Mathematics. Vedic Mathematics is the name of the monumental work done by Late Jagad Guru Swami Sri Bharati Krishna Tirthaji Maharaj. It basically refers to a set of sixteen mathematical formulae discovered by him. Each of the sixteen formulae talks about a separate branch of Mathematics. These sixteen formulae can be readily applied to wide range of practical problems and applications including Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, Conics and others. So you don’t have to sit and storm your brain and when u see tow six digit numbers to multiply.
The Vedic mathematical formulae can be easily applied to solve any kid of mathematical problems. Various complex mathematical problems which require large number of steps to solve can be easily solved in few steps. Many times the problems can be solved mentally without writing any transitional steps. The Vedic mathematic system is coherent, direct and easy to understand. It makes a person to do calculations 10 to 15 times faster. Vedic mathematics will not only useful to the students those who struggle in mathematics but its also useful in general life also.
Just throw away your calculators and try out this simple trick.
