Lately I've noticed a lot of websites proclaiming the greatness of Vedic Mathematics. The most accepted system of Mathematics is the current Hindu-Arabic one. I personally can't get with the Vedic system that is now being heavily advertised. It seems like a lot of unnecessary steps are taken to solve an equation. Is there an African Mathematics system that is easier to understand and/or is more advanced? If so, can you give examples of how problems are solved using that method?
