1) Kṛtvas (कृत्वस्):—[from kṛ] a ind. at the end of a numeral or numeral adjective, -fold, times (e.g. daśa-kṛtvas, ten times; bahu-k, many times; pañca-k, fivefold, [Pāṇini 2-3, 64]). In the Veda kṛtvas is used as a separate word (e.g. bhūri k, many times, [Ṛg-veda iii, 18, 4]; pañca k, [Taittirīya-saṃhitā vi]), but according to, [Pāṇini 5-4, 17 and 20] ([Vopadeva vii, 70]) it is only an affix, and it is so used in classical Sanskṛt

2) [v.s. ...] it was originally an [accusative] [plural] [from] kṛtu, formed by the affix tu [from] √1. kṛ (cf. also kṛt in sakṛt.)

3) [from kṛtnu] b etc. See, [ib.]
