# What was the date 171 months ago?

## Friday April 16, 2010

0

171 months before today was 16 Apr 2010, a Friday. Subtracting 171 months in the past is usually just counting from July; however, longer calculations will push us from 2024 into 2023 or further. Even if the calculation remains within the year, I usually take note of the 16 days left in the middle of July to prep for an additional calculation before June. But that’s all there is to it - understand the month, if 171 months will change the year, season, or fiscal calendar, and subtract your dates.

## How we calculated 171 months 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 171 months ago gets calculated on each visit:

1. We started with date inputs: used current day of 16 Jul, then set the calculation - 171 months, and factored in the year 2024
2. Noted your current time of year: 171 months in July will bring us back to June or further.
3. Counted backwards months from current day: date - 16 Jul, factoring in the 16 days left in July to calculate Friday April 16, 2010
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 16

• Current date: 16 Jul
• Day of the week: Friday
• New Date: Friday April 16, 2010
• New Date Day of the week: Friday
• April is the end of the quarter and the beginning of spring. It's also Phillies Opening Day, so plan according and take the week off work! (Go Phils)
• 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 171 months ago

1. Calculate it: Start with a time ago calculator. 171 months is easiest solved on a calculator. For ours, we've already factored in the 16 days in July + all number of days in each month and the number of days in . Simply add your months and choose the length of time, then click "calculate". This calculation does not factor in workdays or holidays (see below!).
2. Use July's calendar: Begin by identifying 16 Jul on a calendar, note that it’s Friday, and the total days in June (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 171 times months by months, subtracting months from until your remainder of months is 0.
3. Use excel: For more complex months calculations or if you h8 our site (kidding), I use Excel functions like =TODAY()-171 to get or =WORKDAY(TODAY()), -171, cell:cell) for working months.

## Working months in 171 calendar months

171 months is Friday April 16, 2010 or could be if you only want workdays. This calculation takes 171 months and only subtracts by the number of workdays in a week. Remember, removing the weekend from our calculation will drastically change our original Friday April 16, 2010 date.
