# What was the date 27 days ago?

## Tuesday May 28, 2024

0

27 days ago from today was 28 May 2024, a Tuesday. When calculating a period over two weeks in the past, it's important to account for the day of the week. Since today is Monday, we'll need to account for a full week before hitting weekend days. This takes our subtraction across multiple weeks, and with 24 days until the end of June counting backwards from today in the end of of the month means that subtracting 27 days ago will bring us back to May or further.

## How we calculated 27 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 27 days ago gets calculated on each visit:

1. We started with date inputs: used current day of 24 Jun, then set the calculation - 27 days, and factored in the year 2024
2. Noted your current time of year: 27 days in June will bring us back to May or further.
3. Counted backwards days from current day: date - 24 Jun, factoring in the 24 days left in June to calculate Tuesday May 28, 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 May 28

• Current date: 24 Jun
• Day of the week: Tuesday
• New Date: Tuesday May 28, 2024
• New Date Day of the week: Tuesday
• Counting backward from May could put you back in Q1 or even the previous year.
• This calculation crosses at least one month. Remeber, this will change our day of the week.

## Ways to calculate 27 days ago

1. Calculate it: Start with a time ago calculator. 27 days is easiest solved on a calculator. For ours, we've already factored in the 24 days in June + 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 June's calendar: Begin by identifying 24 Jun on a calendar, note that it’s Tuesday, and the total days in May (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 27 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()-27 to get or =WORKDAY(TODAY()), -27, cell:cell) for working days.

## Working days in 27 calendar days

27 days is Tuesday May 28, 2024 or could be if you only want workdays. This calculation takes 27 days and only subtracts by the number of workdays in a week. Remember, removing the weekend from our calculation will drastically change our original Tuesday May 28, 2024 date.
