Vedic mathematics is one of the contributions of India in the field of Mathematics. A saint of the Shankaracharya Order, Swami Bharati Krishna Tirthaji, happened to come across some Ganita Sutras or mathematical texts. He reconstructed them into 16 sutras and 13 upa-sutras. In the sutras he found some patterns of calculations related to topics such as subtraction, multiplication, squaring, square roots, cubes, cube roots, division, simple and quadratic equations, and much more.
