# What was the date 16 days ago?

## Sunday April 07, 2024

16 days ago from today was 07 Apr 2024, a Sunday. When calculating a period over two weeks in the past, it's important to account for the day of the week. Since today is Tuesday and still part of the beginning of the week we won't need to add additional days into next week.. This takes our subtraction across multiple weeks, and with 23 days until the end of April counting backwards from today in the early part of of the month means that subtracting 16 days ago will keep us in April and we don’t need to worry about adjusting months or years..

## How we calculated 16 days 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 16 days ago gets calculated on each visit:

1. We started with date inputs: used current day of 23 Apr, then set the calculation - 16 days, and factored in the year 2024
2. Noted your current time of year: 16 days in April will keep us in April and we don’t need to worry about adjusting months or years.
3. Counted backwards days from current day: date - 23 Apr, factoring in the 23 days left in April to calculate Sunday April 07, 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 April 07

## Ways to calculate 16 days ago

1. Calculate it: Start with a time ago calculator. 16 days is easiest solved on a calculator. For ours, we've already factored in the 23 days in April + all number of days in each month and the number of days in . Simply add your days and choose the length of time, then click "calculate". This calculation does not factor in workdays or holidays (see below!).
2. Use April's calendar: Begin by identifying 23 Apr on a calendar, note that it’s Sunday, and the total days in March (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 16 times days by days, subtracting days from until your remainder of days is 0.
3. Use excel: For more complex days calculations or if you h8 our site (kidding), I use Excel functions like =TODAY()-16 to get or =WORKDAY(TODAY()), -16, cell:cell) for working days.

## Working days in 16 calendar days

16 days is Sunday April 07, 2024 or could be if you only want workdays. This calculation takes 16 days and only subtracts by the number of workdays in a week. Remember, removing the weekend from our calculation will drastically change our original Sunday April 07, 2024 date.
