# Do you find it difficult to learn the tables? Here is an easy solution.

Home : Education : Vedic Maths

Students often are asked to write the table of some value greater than 10 in their maths subject. For example, what if you are asked to write the table of 21? If you don't remember the table then you are forced to multiply in the rough and that may take a lot of your time.

Example 1:

Here is an easy method to write the table of 21.

In the value 21, the first digit is 2 and the 2nd digit is 1. So, what we can do is to write the table of 2 and 1 side by side and then by just grouping the respective values (from 1st place to 10th place) you will get the values for the table of 21 as below.

2 1 = 21 (1st place)
4 2 = 42
6 3 = 63
8 4 = 84
10 5 = 105
12 6 = 126
14 7 = 147
16 8 = 168
18 9 = 189
20 10 = 210 (10th place) [ 21 0 = 210] (exceptional case)

So, as above table of 2 (left table) + table of 1 (middle table) = table of 21 (right table)

WOW! it is so easy to write the table of 21 without even learning. Just if you know the table of 2 and 1 then that is enough to write the table of 21 quickly with this trick.

The only problem is when we group 20 and 10 in the 10th place we should get 2010 but I have written 210. There is a reason behind this.

If in the middle table whenever you see a value greater than or equal to 10 then we take the first digit of this value as carry (keeping the 2nd digit only of this value in the right table) and add the carry to the value in the left table.

So, in the 10th place above we have taken 1 as carry from the value of 10 (in the middle table) and added it to 20 (value in the left table) while only keeping 0 (2nd digit of 10 in the middle table) in the right table. This is how you need to do to get the correct value.

Example 2:

Let us take another example to understand better. Suppose you need to write the table of 26. We can do the same way as above. Write the table of 2 and then 6 and then group together to get the table of 26. But here only the middle table value is less than 10 in the first place only. So, we need to work on the carry method as mentioned above.

2 6 = 26 (1st place)
4 12 => (4+1)2 => 52
6 18 = (6+1)8 => 78
8 24 = (8+2)4 => 104
10 30 = (10+3)0 => 130
12 36 = (12+3)6 => 156
14 42 = (14+4)2 => 182
16 48 = (16+4)8 => 208
18 54 = (18+5)4 => 234
20 60 = (20+6)0 => 260 (10th place)

If you are intelligent or with practice you can do this in the mind and then it will be so easy to write the table of any number quickly. This is a Vedic maths concept and this is valid if you want to get the table of any number whatsoever.
