## How do you predict the day of the week for any date?

Here is a standard method suitable for mental computation:

- Take the last two digits of the year.
- Divide by 4, discarding any fraction.
- Add the day of the month.
- Add the month’s key value: JFM AMJ JAS OND 144 025 036 146.
- Subtract 1 for January or February of a leap year.

**How can I learn doomsday algorithm?**

Here’s how to do it in four steps:

- Step 1: Memorizing weekdays as numbers. In Conway’s concept, each weekday is represented by a number:
- Step 2: Memorizing the anchor days.
- Step 3: Calculating the doomsday of any given year.
- Step 4: Move from the doomsday to the date in question.

## How do you find the day of the week using algorithms?

Tomohiko Sakamoto’s Algorithm- Finding the day of the week. Given any date according to the Gregorian Calendar, the task is to return the day(Monday, Tuesday…etc) on that particular day. Examples: Although there are a plenty of methods to solve this question but one of the least known and most powerful method is Tomohiko Sakamoto’s Algorithm.

### How do you calculate the number of days in a month?

Algorithm for Determining the Number of Days in a Month. 2012-04-12. In summary: The number of days in a month can be calculated as: var daysInMonth = (month === 2)? (28 + isLeapYear) : 31 – (month – 1) \% 7 \% 2; Where the month is represented as a number between 1 and 12 and isLeapYear is 1 if the year is a leap year.

#### What do the numbers in a date and month mean?

Where d is the day, m is the month addressed in the date, y is the calendar year, and c is the century number. Each day of the week is given a number. For instance, Sunday is the first day of the week and is represented by 1, Monday by 2, and so on.

**Who invented the calendar algorithm?**

The algorithm is attributed to Gauss. Yes, I do know that Jews and Muslims etc have different calenders and I do know about the various calender reforms, so this only applies to the modern Christian-based standardised dates, don’t go using it to check the day of Christ’s crucifixion (-fiction?) or even Chaucer’s birth.
