Since mathematics has always been essential to our lives, kids must have a solid foundation. While learning math through traditional ways might occasionally feel difficult, Vedic Mathematics offers a unique and fascinating approach that can make learning math for youngsters pleasant and exciting.
Ekanyunena Purvena, which helps kids to execute fast calculations efficiently, is one of the essential Vedic Maths concepts and is the sub-sutra to Nikhilam, Ekanyunena Purvena, and has the meaning of “one less than the previous” OR “one less than the one before.”
Only a few situations can be applied to this sutra, and they must meet strict requirements. Such as, a number that needs to be multiplied (the multiplicand/multiplier) only has nine digits. For instance, 999, 99999, 99999999, and so forth.
The condition mentioned above is possible only in three different situations.
Case 1. Both numbers contain an equal number of digits.
Example: 2463 x 9999
To obtain the left part of the answer, you deduct 1 from the Multiplicand using the Ekanyunena Purvena method.
2463 – 1 = 2462
To determine the right part of the answer, subtract the left part obtained in Step 1 from the multiplier.
9999- 2462 = 7537
Thus, 2463 × 9999 = 24627537
Case 2. Suppose the number of digits in one of the numbers is smaller than the count of 9s in the second number.
Example: 347 x 9999
By subtracting 1 from the Multiplicand, the left part of the answer is derived using the Ekanyunena Purvena method.
347-1 = 346
To obtain the right part of the answer, subtract the left part obtained in Step 1 from the multiplier.
9999 – 346 = 9653
Thus, 347 × 9999 = 3469653
Case 3. Suppose the number of digits in one of the numbers exceeds the count of 9s in the second number.
Example: 266 x 99
Step1. Due to two 9s in the multiplier, we multiply the Multiplicand by 100, representing the two zeroes in the result.
266 × 100 = 26600
Next, deduct the Multiplicand from the product obtained in step 1.
26600 – 266 = 26334
Thus, 266 × 99 = 26334
The Ekanyunena Purvena is a beneficial method that enables kids to calculate things with ease mentally. This technique can be used in mathematics to help kids solve problems more easily.
