Calendar Calc

I am going to tell you one of the fastest method to find to day of any date from the year 1900to19991900 to 1999 just by giving out 4 inputs. For this method you must know the code of the day and months.

These are the codes for the month:-

Jan=1

Feb=4

Mar=4

Apr=0

May=2

Jun=5

Jul=0

Aug=3

Sept=6

Oct=1

Nov=4

Dec=6

These are the codes for the days:-

Sun=1

Mon=2

Tue=3

Wed=4

Thu=5

Fri=6

Sat=0

Let's take an example:-

Find which day was 19July196719 July 1967

Let's start solving by giving the four inputs:-

--> Date = 1919

--> Last 2 digits of the year = 6767

--> Number of leap years occurred in that century = 67/4 = 1616

Note that for this input JUST TAKE THE QUOTIENT NOT THE REMAINDER.

--> Code of the month = 00

By adding all the inputs we get the answer 102102

Now, divide the result by 7 and ONLY TAKE THE REMAINDER.

= 102/7102 / 7 = 14 and the remainder is 4.

And 4 is the code which day you have to find.

And 4 is the code of WednesdayWednesday

So, the answer is 19July1967wasWednesday. 19 July 1967 was Wednesday.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.
