Meet Dilpreet Kaur, The 14-Year-Old Who Just Set A Maths Record


She can solve 100 division sums in just 96 seconds and 10 times that number in 17 minutes. Meet Dilpreet Kaur, who is just 14 years old but all set to be part of the Limca Book of Records’ latest edition.

“Solving sums has almost become a passion for my daughter Dilpreet,” said her father Manjeet Singh to The Times of Indiain an interview. “To improve her brain’s ability, we guided her to follow ancient abacus theory to perform mathematical functions like multiplication, division, addition, subtraction, square root and cube root. But, we did not know that her hard work would set a new record.”

Kaur’s parents said that they received an email from the record book officials last month confirming that their daughter had set a new record. She has also received a certificate and trophy from them.

The class 8 student’s love affair with numbers started six years ago, and though she credits her parents for her skills, Singh says “it’s all due to her dedication and hard work”. Singh told TOI that she solves nearly 5,000 sums daily.

In fact, she is already focusing on the next record which she hopes to set for 2017: she wants to break the existing world record for one digit 100 row addition, which has been completed in 19.23 seconds earlier.
