Ekadhikena Purvena

Meaning : "By one more than the previous one"

This sutra is used exclusively for numbers ending with 5.

For numbers ending with 5 the LHS will be 25.

The RHS will be the product of the other digits with its ekadhikena.

Examples :

252 = (2 * 3) | 25 = 625

352 = (3 * 4) | 25 = 1225

452 = (4 * 5) | 25 = 2025

552 = (5 * 6 ) | 25 = 3035

652 = (6 * 7) | 25 = 4225

752 = (7 * 8) | 25 = 5625

1052 = (10 * 11) | 25 = 11025

1252 = (12 * 13) | 25 = 15625
