*Whose last digits together total 10 and whose previous part is exactly the same*

Antyayor Dasakepi is the corollary to Puranapuranabyham, the eighth sutra of Vedic mathematics.

What follows is a

*brief*and

*incomplete*summary of the math shortcuts this corollary contains:

**Multiplying two numbers when the last digit of each adds up to 10, and the first digit(s) of each is the same**Such as 43 x 47, 51 x 59, 94 x 96, etc.

*Example #1:*61 x 69

Multiply the last digit of each number: 1 x 9 = 9

Multiply the first digit of each number

*but add a 1 to one of them*: (6 + 1) x 6 = 42

To this number, add the 2 zeros we dropped in the previous step: 4200

Add to this number the result in the first step: 4200 + 9 = 4209

Thus, 61 x 69 =

**4209**

*Example #2:*114 x 116

Multiply the last digit of each number: 4 x 6 = 24

Multiply the first digits of each number but add a 1 to one of them: (11 + 1) x 11 = 132 (Note: you can use the Trachtenberg system to quickly multiply any number by 11)

Add to this number the 2 zeroes we dropped: 13200

Add to this number the result in the first step: 13200 + 24 =

**13224**

**Multiplying two numbers when the last 2 digits of each adds up to 100 and the first digit(s) of each is the same**

*Example:*689 x 611

Multiply the last two digits of each number: 89 x 11 = 979 (Note: you can use the Trachtenberg system to quickly multiply any number by 11)

Multiply the first digit of each number but add a 1 to one of them: (6 + 1) x 6 = 42

Add to this number the 4 zeroes we dropped: 420000

Add to this number the result in the first step: 420000 + 979 =

**420979**

This sutra is similar to Ekadhikina Purvena in that it can be used to square numbers ending in 5. This sutra can also be applied when the last 3 digits add up to 1000, the last 4 digits add up to 10000, etc. To learn more about Antyayor Dasakepi, check out the resources below.
