298 years in the past was 16 Jul 1726, a Tuesday. Subtracting 298 years in the past is usually simple. Anything under a decade can usually be counted on one hand. The biggest challenge will be skipping decades behind or even centuries. Additionally, we’re 16 days from the end of July, so being in the middle of of the month, you'll need to consider monthly changes as well. Weekly and daily changes most likely won't impact 298 years ago.

## How we calculated 298 years 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 298 years ago gets calculated on each visit:

1. We started with date inputs: used current day of 16 Jul, then set the calculation - 298 years, and factored in the year 2024
2. Noted your current time of year: 298 years in July will bring us back to June or further.
3. Counted backwards years from current day: date - 16 Jul, factoring in the 16 days left in July to calculate Tuesday July 16, 1726
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 July 16

## Ways to calculate 298 years ago

1. Calculate it: Start with a time ago calculator. 298 years 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 years 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 Tuesday, 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 298 times years by years, subtracting years from until your remainder of years is 0.
3. Use excel: For more complex years calculations or if you h8 our site (kidding), I use Excel functions like =TODAY()-298 to get or =WORKDAY(TODAY()), -298, cell:cell) for working years.
