Vedic Maths : Lesson One

This article about the lesson one of vedic mathematics is aimed to explain simple additions.

Here we will learn about numbers and their friends.

Numbers and their friends means numbers which add up to give 10.


Here friend of 9 is 1, 8 is 2, 7 is 3, 6 is 4, and similarly friend of 1 is 9 , 2 is 8, 3 is 7, 6 is 4 and 5 is 5.

While adding two digit number we could see whether the unit digit add up to give 10.

For example 18+2 = 20 , here the unit digit or ones place add up to give 10 , so we round number 18 to nearest tens that is 20. Another way of doing this is carry over the number one from units place to tens place to get the next number.

Here the numbers in units place are friends so round the number 67 to nearest tens and make it 70.
