Since the reconstruction of this ancient system interest in Vedic Mathematics has been growing rapidly. Its simplicity and coherence are found to be astonishing and we begin to wonder why we bother with our modern methods when such easy and enjoyable methods are available.

This book gives a comprehensive introduction to the sixteen formulae on which the system is based, showing their application in many areas of elementary maths so that a real feel for the formulae is acquired.

Using simple patterns based on natural mental faculties, problems normally requiring many steps of working are shown to be easily solved in one line, often forwards or backwards

Vedic Mathematics solutions of examination questions are also given, and in this edition comparisons with the conventional methods are shown, and also an account of the significance of the Vedic formulae (Sutras).
