Vedic Maths:- multiply two numbers close to 100 i.e 98, 102, etc

By ac05 | Vedic Maths | 6 May 2021

Let us understand it by taking two examples.

  • Multiply 99 × 97

  • Multiply 103 × 105

Steps to perform this are:-

  • Find by how much the number is more or less than the power of 100 and write it on the right side of the vertical line.


  • Either cross subtracts or cross add. This will form the first part of the final answer.


  • Multiply the right side of the vertical line and this shall form the right side of the result.


                     03                                                          15

  • Add this multiplied number to the end giving 9603 and 10815 respectively.


This is how you can multiply numbers close to 100 in just 3 steps.

Try some on your own.

  • 102 x 105
  • 98 x 93
  • 99 x 99
