# Types of Calculations

The different types of calculations that form the basis of mathematics are:- Addition
- Subtraction
- Multiplication
- Division
- Ratio comparison
- Percentage calculations

When we talk about the techniques of calculations, addition and subtraction can simply not have any short-cuts. Since addition and subtraction are the basic units, we can at best only approximate the values.

In case of multiplication, the techniques of vedic maths can be used.

Ratio comparison techniques are discussed in the chapter on ratio, proportion and variation and the percentage calculations in the chapter on percentage.
