# Multiplication of Numbers Below the Base Number

It involves the multiplication amongest numbers, where two numbers are below the base.

## Multiplication of Numbers Below the Base Number

#### Rules:

Rule 1. Reduce numbers from the base values.
Rule 2. Cross section the multiplier and multiplicand and add it to the reduced values. You will get same difference on both the sides.
Rule 3. Multiply the reduced values. If the resultant value is less than the base value add zero before it. If the resultant value is greater than the base value carry the remainder 1.
Rule 4. Add the carry value with the difference value.
Rule 5. Append both the values to get the final result.

#### Example I : 89 X 98

Rule 1 : Here base value is 100. So, 89 - 100 = -11 and 98 - 100 = -2
Rule 2 : 89 – 2 = 87 ; 98 -11 = 87
Rule 3 : -2 x -11 = 22
Rule 4 : No carry values
Rule 5 : Append the result is, 89 x 98 = 8722

#### Example II : 928 X 986

Rule 1 : Here base value is 1000. So, 928 - 1000 = -72 and 986 - 1000 = -14
Rule 2 : 928 - 14 = 986 - 72 = 914
Rule 3 : 14 x 72 = 1008. Here the obtained value is greater than the base value. So carry the one. i.e., 008 (carry 1)
Rule 4 : 914 + 1 = 915
Rule 5 : Append the obtained values, 928 x 986 = 915008

Thus, the vedic maths multiplication for numbers below the base numbers can be done easier.
