Then the answer is “Vedic Maths”;

The science lost due to the advent of modern mathematics. Vedic mathematics – a gift given to this world by the ancient India. A system which is far more simple and enjoyable than modern mathematics. Research shows that the application of Vedic mathematics makes use of both parts of the brain.

Vedic Mathematics is the name given to the ancient system of Mathematics which was rediscovered from the Vedas between 1911 and 1918. An ancient text of the Indian teachings called Veda. For example, ‘Vertically and Crosswise` is one of these Sutras. These formulae describe the way the mind naturally works and are therefore a great help in directing the student to the appropriate method of solution.

It has some similarities to the Trachtenberg system in that it speeds up some arithmetic calculations. It claims to have applications to more advanced mathematics, such as calculus and linear algebra. The system was first published in the book Vedic Mathematics in 1965. The system has since been developed further and there have been several other books released.

In the Vedic system ‘difficult’ problems or huge sums can often be solved immediately by the Vedic method. These striking and beautiful methods are just a part of a complete system of mathematics which is far more systematic than the modern ‘system’. Vedic Mathematics manifests the coherent and unified structure of mathematics and the methods are complementary, direct and easy.

The Vedic Mathematics Sutras. This list of sutras is taken from the book Vedic Mathematics, which includes a full list of the sixteen Sutras and in Sanskrit, but in some cases a translation of the Sanskrit is not given in the text and comes from elsewhere.
