## Using the Average method of Solving quadratic equations IV

I wrote to Dr. Po-Shen Loh that I previously used a method similar to his "new approach", and in response, he gave me an address where we can chat. Dr Po-Shen Loh sent me the following links:  https://www.poshenloh.com/quadraticrelated,  where he…

## Using the Average method of Solving Quadratic Equations III

Dr. Po-Shen Loh, in his YouTube video, “A different way to solve quadratic equations”( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBalWWHYFQc)  mentioned about studying the works of the ancient Babylonians, 15th- century Mathematicians and even works of Indians. He found out that the key points of…

## “Using the Average” method of solving Quadratic Equations II

Yesterday I posted about having written about what Prof Po-Shen Loh recently discovered as a “different method of solving quadratic equations”. I would like to stress that I used it only in factoring while Dr Loh used it to directly…

## “Using The Average” method of solving quadratic equations

Last Dec 21, in our 21st MATH-Inic Special for Christmas, I discussed about what the very popular YouTuber Presh Talwalkar of MindYourDecision referred to as “a different method of solving quadratic equations that everybody is talking about”. This further strengthened…

## MSC #30 – “By Inspection”

We reserved this Sutra for the last of our 30 MATH-Inic Specials for Christmas because it depends largely on how much one has mastered the concepts presented in the previous specials. It also encourages adaptation and stimulates creativity because it…

## MSC #29. Recurring decimals.

Our 29th MATH-Inic Special for Christmas is about a “fun, fast and easy” way to convert a fraction with a prime number denominator into a recurring decimal. In our example here, instead of dividing by 19, we will use its…

## MSC #28- By Addition and By Subtraction: Solving simultaneous equations.

Our 28th MATH-Inic Special for Christmas is the use of the Sutra ”By Addition and By Subtraction” in solving simultaneous linear equations. Using this Sutra, we can easily eliminate a variable. This is especially handy in cases where the coefficients…

## MSC # 27- Transpose and Apply

The Vedic Mathematics Sutra or word formula “Transpose and Apply” has a much wider application than the “transposition” which we know in Algebra as a short cut of the “golden rule’ of Algebra: do unto one side of the equation,…

## MSC #26 – The Duplex and its Extensions.

The Duplex is an important devise in squaring numbers and polynomials, extracting square roots and solving quadratic equations. Its principles can be extended into triplex and beyond. The duplex of a number with an even number of digits is twice…

## MSC #25 – Counting Events: Labeling Technique

Merry Christmas! Our 25th MATH-Inic Special for Christmas is not of Vedic Math origin but it definitely adheres to the Vedic ideal of “at-sight-one-line-mental-solution”. I learned this technique from the video lessons of James Tanton, the resident mathematician at the…
