Which makes our questions easier and faster.

Before telling you more about sutras. I would like to brief you about Vedic maths.

**What is Vedic math?**

** ***Vedic Mathematics is a collection of techniques (Sutras) to solve mathematical arithmetic in an easy and faster way. It consists of 16 formulas (sutras) and 13 sub-formulas (sub sutras) which can be used for problems involved in arithmetic, algebra, geometry, calculus, and conics. *

*Using regular mathematical steps, solving problems sometimes are complex and time-consuming. But using Vedic Mathematics, numerical calculations can be done very fast. *

*Vedic Mathematics is extremely beneficial as it makes the math learning experience super easy. … One of the most beneficial features of Vedic math is that it enriches and enhances the knowledge and understanding of math so that one can learn it in an easy way.*
