Count the fingers separately on both hands above the fingers in contact and multiply them.

Place the numbers as shown above.

Put the circles on the numbers in cross way.

Multiply the numbers below and place it as it is. Now multiply the numbers in circles and place them in position according on to the side of upper number.

Now make the fraction in which lower is the number which is the product of lower side and the upper number will be the addition and subtraction of numbers on upper side according to sign ‘+’ or ‘-‘ respectively.

Trick 4. Calculation of squaring of numbers from 41 to 49:


Take a number for an instance 43.

Subtract 25 from 43. The answer will be 18.

Now subtract the number 43 from 50. The answer will be 7. Square it i.e. 7×7=49.

Combine the number 18 and 49. The final answer will be 1849.

Similarly, you can use this trick for other numbers from 41 to 49.

First draw one horizontal line and then 2 separately horizontal lines as shown in picture. Place the number by counting the intersection points as shown in picture.

Trick 6. Converting to approximate percentage:
