# Multiplication of Numbers Above and Below Base Number

In vedic maths, base multiplication is a multiplication of two numbers using the base value. Here one number is below the base value and the other one is above the base value.

## Multiply Two Numbers using Vedic Maths Base Method

#### Rules:

Rule 1. Subtract both the numbers from the base value.
Rule 2. Cross section the multiplier and multiplicand value and add it with the reduced result. You should get same value on both the sides.
Rule 3. Multiply the reduced values. If the obtained value is greater than the base value, carry the remainder.
Rule 4. Subtract the remainder value from the difference value and find complement for the reduced result. If you get the carry value again, subtract the one from the difference value.
Rule 5. Join the obtained value to get the final result.

Multiplication of Numbers Above and Below Base 100

#### Example 1 : 92 X 111

Here base value is 100

Rule 1 : 92 – 100 = - 8 ; 111 – 100 = 11,
Rule 2 : 92 + 11 = 103 ; 111 – 8 = 103
Rule 3 : 8 x 11 = 88
Rule 4 : 103 - 1 = 102 Complement of 88 is 12 (100 - 88 = 12)
Rule 5 : Join the values, , 92 X 111 = 10212.

Multiplication of Numbers Above and Below Base 1000

#### Example II : 985 X 1099

Here base value is 1000

Rule 1 : 985 – 1000 = -15 ; 1099 – 1000 = 99,
Rule 2 : 985 + 99 = 1084 ; 1099 - 15 = 1084
Rule 3 : 15 x 99 = 1485. 15 x 99 = 1485. Here the obtained value is greater than one. Carry the remainder 1.
Rule 4 : 1084 - 1 = 1083. Now again subtract the one from the difference value because we have the carry value one. So the result wil be 1082. Complement of 1485 is 515.(2000 – 1485 = 515)
Rule 5 : Append the resultant values, 985 X 1099 = 1082515

Thus, the vedic maths base method multiplication can be used for faster multiplication.
