Hint- Here, we will be using the general formula for probability of occurrence of an event. Here, we will be finding out how exactly we will be able to obtain 53 Fridays in a leap year which consists of 52 weeks and 2 days. As we know that in a leap year, there are 366 days and 7 days is equivalent to 1 week.

Clearly $366 = 364 + 2 = \left( \right) + 2 = $52 weeks and 2 days. So, a leap year consists of 52 weeks and 2 days. In these 52 weeks, there will be 52 Fridays. Hence, the occurrence of 53 Fridays will completely depend on the 2 days left. According to the general formula for probability in given by Probability of occurrence of an event$ = \dfrac }}} }}} } \to }$ Here, the favourable event is the occurrence of Friday in any of the two days left.

All the possible cases of the remaining two days are Monday and Tuesday, Tuesday and Wednesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Thursday and Friday, Friday and Saturday, Saturday and Sunday, Sunday and Monday. Total number of possible outcomes=7 Here, favourable outcomes will count only those cases out of all the possible outcomes in which there is Friday occurring i.e., Thursday and Friday, Friday and Saturday only.

## How many Fridays are in a month?

First Day of the Month – The weekday combinations these 823-year messages refer to aren’t exceptional either. A quick look at a calendar will show that the first 3 weekdays of any 31-day month will be repeated 5 times in that month. So, any month that has 31 days and begins on a Friday will have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays.

### How many Friday and Sunday are there in a year?

Weekend means Saturday & Sunday together. In total we have 52 weeks in a year. So there are 52 weekends in a year. In normal we have 104 Weekend Days. We know that a Each normal year has 365 days or 52 weeks plus one day, and each week has two weekend days, which means there are approximately 104 weekend days each year.

## How much Saturdays are in a year?

During 2023 we will be able to enjoy: 52 weekends.52 Saturdays.53 Sundays.

## How many Thursdays are there in 1 year?

Total number of thursday in thr present year will be 52.

## Can there be 53 Fridays in a year?

So, a leap year consists of 52 weeks and 2 days. In these 52 weeks, there will be 52 Fridays. Hence, the occurrence of 53 Fridays will completely depend on the 2 days left.

#### How many Fridays the 13th are in a year?

The Gregorian calendar follows a pattern of leap years which repeats every 400 years. This is true since the number of days in 400 Gregorian years is which is an exact number of weeks since it is divisible by 7 (namely, ). There are 4,800 months in 400 years, so the 13th of the month occurs 4,800 times in this interval. The number of times the 13th occurs on each weekday is given in the table below. As shown by Brown (1933), the thirteenth of the month is slightly more likely to be on a Friday than on any other day.day | number of 13s | fraction |

Sunday | 687 | 14.31% |

Monday | 685 | 14.27% |

Tuesday | 685 | 14.27% |

### How many Tuesdays are there in a year?

Answer (Detailed Solution Below) – Option 1 : 53 As there are 52 weeks and 1 day in a non-leap year and 52 weeks and 2 days in a leap year. Thus, there can be definitely maximum 53 Tuesdays in a year. Get proficient with the Logical Reasoning concepts with detailed lessons on the topic Clock and Calendar among many others.

#### Which day comes 53 times in the year?

Hint- In this question we need to find the probability that a non-leap year has 53 days, so a leap year is one which has 366 days instead of a normal year which has only 365 days. So use this concept along with the concept of probability to obtain the answer.

Now we have to find the probability that a non-leap year has 53 Sundays. So, As we know that a non-leap year has 365 days also there are 7 days in a week. Since a non-leap year has 365 days and a week has in total 7 days, so let’s compute the number of weeks in a non-leap year, hence it will be 365 divided by 7 So when we divide 365 by 7 we get 52 as quotient and 1 as remainder.

So, there are 52 weeks and 1 extra day. So, there will be only one such day out of 7 which will occur for 53 times in a non-leap year. We have to find the probability that the day which occurs 53 times is Sunday. Let A be an event of getting 53 Sundays in a non-leap year.

- So n(A)=1.
- 1) Since a week has only 7 days, and we are considering one Sunday out of these 7 days hence the total number of outcomes will be 7.
- So n(S) = 7.
- 2) As we know that probability is defined as the number of favourable outcomes divided by the number of Total Outcomes, that is $ }\dfrac } }$ So putting values in the above formula using equation (1) and equation (2) we get $\dfrac $.

Thus the probability that a non-leap year has 53 Sundays is $\dfrac $. Note- To solve these types of questions we must remember that a non-leap year has 365 days. Then when we compute the remainder of 365 divided by 7 we get one. So, we get to know that only one day will repeat for 53 times.

#### Do all months have 4 Thursdays?

Next post Previous post October 20, 2021 at 11:51 PM by Dr. Drang A couple of weeks ago, this question from ldebritto appeared in the Automators forum: I was looking for a way to have Shortcuts peek into last month’s calendar and count how many Thursdays were that month (4 or 5).

- Any ideas on how to make it? Stephen Millard, who posts there under the name sylumer, answered the question with a straightforward shortcut that loops through the days of last month, counting the Thursdays it meets along the way.
- It’s the kind of solution I employ often: a brute force approach that can be written quickly and uses looping instead of excessive cleverness.

And in this case, since there can’t be more than 31 trips around the loop, it will run extremely fast. It’s a good solution. But it nagged at me. This blog has a long history of showing calendrical calculations, and I had written a post on a similar problem (finding months with five Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays) eleven years ago.

The scripts in that post had some brute force aspects, but they also took advantage of how months are structured to filter the loops. I wanted to do something similar for the “how many Thursdays” problem. As ldebritto said in his question, every month has either four or five Thursdays (indeed, four or five of any weekday).

Whether it’s four or five depends on the number of days in the month and the date of the first Thursday of the month. We’ll consider each of these pieces of information and how they affect the answer. Since every month has 28–31 days, we know that each month has four weeks plus 0–3 “extra” days.

The first Thursday of September 2021 was on the 2nd, and there are 2 extra days in September. Since 2 ≤ 2, there were five Thursdays that month. The first Thursday of August 2021 was on the 5th, and there are 3 extra days in August. Since 5 ≰ 2, there were four Thursdays that month.

The logic is simple, but implementing it in Shortcuts takes a little effort because there’s no “date of the first Thursday” function. Instead, we’ll figure out how many days from the first of the month to the first Thursday. And because this is one less than the date of the first Thursday the “less than or equal to” comparison we used above will turn into a simple “less than” comparison.

Step | Action | Comment |
---|---|---|

1 | Get the current date | |

2 | Move to the start of this month. We call this magic variable StartOfThisMonth, | |

3 | Go back one month. We call this magic variable StartOfLastMonth, | |

4 | Get the number of days between StartOfLastMonth and StartOfThisMonth, which is the length of last month. | |

5 | Get the number of days over 4 weeks in last month. We call this magic variable ExtraDaysInMonth, | |

6 | Format StartOfLastMonth with the c code, which gives the day of the week as a number from 1 (Sunday in my locale) to 7 (Saturday). | |

7 | This is where we do the modulo arithmetic to get the number of days from the start of last month to last month’s first Thursday. We call this magic variable DaysToFirstThursday, | |

8 | If this is true | |

9 | Return 5. | |

10 | Otherwise | |

11 | Return 4. | |

12 | End If block. | |

13 | Show the answer. |

The only tricky parts here are Steps 6 and 7. Custom date formatting patterns in Shortcuts follow Unicode Technical Standard #35, where c will give the day of the week as a digit from 1 to 7. In my locale Day 1 is Sunday and Day 7 is Saturday; it may be different where you live.

- Step 7 uses the number we got in Step 6 and calculates the number of days from the start of the month to the first Thursday.
- This involves modulo 7 arithmetic, so the first thing we have to do is subtract 1 from the Step 6 result.
- Numbers in mod 7 go from 0 to 6, not 1 to 7.
- After subtraction, we’re in a day numbering system where Thursday is 4.

To get the number of days from the start of the month to the first Thursday, we subtract the weekday number from 4, add 7 (to force a positive result), and then get the remainder ( mod ) after dividing by 7. Let’s do a couple of examples. If I run the shortcut today, last month is September 2021, which started on a Wednesday.

- Step 6 returns 4, and Step 7 returns (4 – (4 – 1) + 7) mod 7 = (4 – 3 + 7) mod 7 = 8 mod 7 = 1 which makes sense, as there’s one day from the start of September 2021 to the first Thursday of the month.
- If you’re wondering why we bothered adding 7 and doing the mod stuff—why not just do 4 – (4 – 1) = 1?—think of what happens when we run the shortcut next month.

October 2021 starts on a Friday. Step 6 returns 6, and Step 7 returns (4 – (6 – 1) + 7) mod 7 = (4 – 5 + 7) mod 7 = 6 mod 7 = 6 and there are, in fact, 6 days from the start of October 2021 to the first Thursday of the month. Here, without the + 7 we would have gotten a result of -1 which is not the number of days from the start of October to its first Thursday.

- By including the + 7 and mod 7 terms, we have an equation that handles all cases.
- This is not nearly as easy to understand as Stephen Millard’s solution, so I didn’t post it to the forum.
- On the other hand, his solution didn’t exercise my modulo muscles.
- By the way, it didn’t take me two weeks to work this out.

I had the shortcut written the day of the question, but I soon learned that my splitflow script for creating the table of Shortcuts steps you see above was broken. The Shortcuts team changed the look of the app, and the computer vision functions that splitflow uses weren’t able to figure out the top and bottom boundaries of the steps.

### Why is there 265 days in a year?

Why do we have leap years? – A year is the amount of time it takes a planet to orbit its star one time. A day is the amount of time it takes a planet to finish one rotation on its axis. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech It takes Earth approximately 365 days and 6 hours to orbit the Sun. It takes Earth approximately 24 hours — 1 day — to rotate on its axis. So, our year is not an exact number of days. Because of that, most years, we round the days in a year down to 365.

Year | Days in Year | Leap Year? |
---|---|---|

2017 | 365 | No |

2018 | 365 | No |

2019 | 365 | No |

2020 | 366 | Yes |

Because we’ve subtracted approximately 6 hours — or ¼ of a day — from 2017, 2018 and 2019, we have to make up that time in 2020. That’s why we have leap day!

### Why is there 5 extra days in a year?

Nearly every four years, we add an extra day to the calendar in the form of February 29, also known as Leap Day. Put simply, these additional 24 hours are built into the calendar to ensure that it stays in line with the Earth’s movement around the Sun.

#### What years are leap year?

What is a leap year? – To be a leap year, the year number must be divisible by four – except for end-of-century years, which must be divisible by 400. This means that the year 2000 was a leap year, although 1900 was not.2024, 2028, 2032 and 2036 are all leap years.

### Which year has 53 Fridays?

If the year starts on a Friday in a non-leap year, like 2021, you end up with 53 Fridays. (If either of the first two days lands on a Friday during a leap year, then you can also get 53 Fridays).

## Are there always 4 Fridays in a month?

The shortest possible month is a 28 day February which makes for a 4 Fridays month. Because 28 is 4 * 7, a 28 day month MUST have exactly 4 Fridays and not fewer. The longest possible month has 31 days, so max 5 Fridays.

### How many weekdays in a month?

How many business days do we have in a month? It typically ranges between 19-22 days, considering a 5-day workweek. Since the number of days varies from month to month, the number of workdays also varies. If we consider a 6-day workweek, the number of workdays varies between 24-27 days.
