Let us learn, how to do 'Division' operation using 'Vedic Math'. Conventionally, we do it like following:

Divisor ) Dividend ( Quotient

---------

---------

_________

Remainder

However, in the Vedic process, the format is

Divisor ) Dividend

--------

Quotient | Remainder

Let us first start with one of the special case of division i.e.

When dividing by 9, the remainder is always the digit sum of the original number.

To divide ab by 9 : Rewrite ab as a | b . The quotient is a, and the remainder is simply a + b.

a | b

| a

---------

a | a + b

Here quotient = 1 and remainder = 1+2 = 3

Here quotient = 2 and remainder = 2+3 = 5

Here quotient = 7 and remainder = 7+0 = 7

Now, let us discuss the cases when remainder is greater than 9 :-

Let us first start with one of the special case of division i.e.

**Division By 9**, a very interesting and simple technique.When dividing by 9, the remainder is always the digit sum of the original number.

**For 2-digit number divided by 9**To divide ab by 9 : Rewrite ab as a | b . The quotient is a, and the remainder is simply a + b.

a | b

| a

---------

a | a + b

**Examples:**

**12 divided by 9**Here quotient = 1 and remainder = 1+2 = 3

**23 divided by 9**Here quotient = 2 and remainder = 2+3 = 5

**70 divided by 9**Here quotient = 7 and remainder = 7+0 = 7

Now, let us discuss the cases when remainder is greater than 9 :-
