The ancient system of Vedic Mathematics was Sutras or mathematical formulas as referred to in

known as the Vedas, between 1911 and 1918 by compiled these 16 Sutras and 13 sub-Sutras [1].

Consider two n-bit numbers x and y to be
multiplied. Then their complements can be
represented as x1 = 10n - x and y1 = 10n – y. The
product of the two numbers can be given as p =
(x, y). Now a factor 102n +10n (x + y) is added

p = xy + 102n +10n (x + y) - 102n - 10n ( x + y)

On simplifying we get,
This is the general formula which is applicable to
p = {10n (x + y) - 102n} + {102n -10n (x + y) + xy}
