# What was the date 10 weeks ago?

## Saturday March 16, 2024

0

10 weeks ago from today was 16 Mar 2024, a Saturday. Week conversions that span across multiple months now must consider the 25 days left in end of May because 10 weeks will keep us in May and we don’t need to worry about adjusting months or years. Run this calculation first by understanding where we’re at in May, identify if we’ll drop into April, and count backwards by 10.

## How we calculated 10 weeks before today

All of our day calculators are measured and QA'd by our engineer. Read more about the Git process here. But here's how 10 weeks ago gets calculated on each visit:

1. We started with date inputs: used current day of 25 May, then set the calculation - 10 weeks, and factored in the year 2024
2. Noted your current time of year: 10 weeks in May will keep us in May and we don’t need to worry about adjusting months or years.
3. Counted backwards weeks from current day: date - 25 May, factoring in the 25 days left in May to calculate Saturday March 16, 2024
4. Did NOT factor in workdays: In this calculation, we kept weekend. See below for just workdays or the fiscal calendar

### Tips when solving for March 16

• Current date: 25 May
• Day of the week: Saturday
• New Date: Saturday March 16, 2024
• New Date Day of the week: Saturday
• March is usually not, but sometimes super tricky. Factor in Leap Years and Easter, which falls on varying dates each year, if you need a date in the past.
• This calculation crosses at least one month. Remeber, this will change our day of the week.
• Your date will be a weekend. Consider if you only want workdays in your calculation.

## Ways to calculate 10 weeks ago

1. Calculate it: Start with a time ago calculator. 10 weeks is easiest solved on a calculator. For ours, we've already factored in the 25 days in May + all number of days in each month and the number of days in . Simply add your weeks and choose the length of time, then click "calculate". This calculation does not factor in workdays or holidays (see below!).
2. Use May's calendar: Begin by identifying 25 May on a calendar, note that it’s Saturday, and the total days in April (trust me, you’ll need this for smaller calculations) and days until last year (double trust me, you'll need this for larger calculations). From there, count backwards 10 times weeks by weeks, subtracting weeks from until your remainder of weeks is 0.
3. Use excel: For more complex weeks calculations or if you h8 our site (kidding), I use Excel functions like =TODAY()-10 to get or =WORKDAY(TODAY()), -10, cell:cell) for working weeks.

## Working weeks in 10 calendar weeks

10 weeks is Saturday March 16, 2024 or could be if you only want workdays. This calculation takes 10 weeks and only subtracts by the number of workdays in a week. Remember, removing the weekend from our calculation will drastically change our original Saturday March 16, 2024 date.
