Secrets of Fast & Easy Mathematics #2

“The difference between the poet and the mathematician is that the poet tries to get his head into the heavens while the mathematician tries to get the heavens into his head.” ― G.K. Chesterton

This is my second article on easy and fast mathematics. If you have not read my first article then please read that first so you can understand this one much better.

I repeat, fast mathematics is not a trick but a skill. If you really want to be good at it, you have to practice a lot.

So here are some new methods:

Multiply a number between 10 and 20 by a 1 digit number

If you want to multiply a number between 10 and 20 by a 1 digit number then multiply that 1 digit Continue reading “Secrets of Fast & Easy Mathematics #2”

“If people do not believe that mathematics is simple, it is only because they do not realize how complicated life is.” ― John von Neumann

You must have tried to solve or calculate large numbers in your head. But it is not so easy. It takes too much time and chances of mistakes are even high. Do you know, the reason? It is not that you don’t know the basics like addition, subtraction or multiplication etc. The problem is, the method you use to add, subtract or multiply numbers is useful if you are using a pen and paper. We all have learnt mathematics in our school time. We had used pen and paper to practice and solve all those calculations. But that method will not work if you are doing it in your head.

There is completely a different way to do this. Yes it is right… there is a different method to do all those calculations in your head. But remember… it is just a method, not a trick. It is like learning a few basic concepts about mathematics and using those concepts for different calculations, again and again. Continue reading “Secrets of Fast & Easy Mathematics”
