Child Genius Reveals Secret Geometric Pattern Hidden In the 4 Times Table*

By Luke Miller

Seven year old math genius Amir shows us what happens to the 4 times table when you apply a Vedic mathematical principle called sutra digit sums. This is when you take the digits from a given sum and add them together- so in the example of 3×4=12 you would add the 1 and 2 which would give you 3. If you are given a number which is equal to double digits you add the double digit number you are left with after the initial sum until left with a 1 digit number. In the example of 12×4=48 you would add 4 and 8, giving you 12, then you would add the 1 and 2, giving you 3.

When you apply this formula to the 4 times table we are left with a beautiful geometric pattern which has significant symbolic meaning.
