# What was the date 400 weeks ago?

## Sunday January 08, 2017

0

400 weeks ago from today was 08 Jan 2017, a Sunday. Anytime we’re subtracting halves of the year, we need to ensure that we’re still in 2024. It looks like 400 weeks from now will bring us back to pre 2023 and we’ll need to factor this into our subtraction because it will change the calendar and fiscal years. For larger calculations like this, I start by subtracting total days, then counting backwards 2800 days on a calendar until getting my solution of Sunday January 08, 2017.

## How we calculated 400 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 400 weeks ago gets calculated on each visit:

1. We started with date inputs: used current day of 08 Sep, then set the calculation - 400 weeks, and factored in the year 2024
2. Noted your current time of year: 400 weeks in September will bring us back to August or further.
3. Counted backwards weeks from current day: date - 08 Sep, factoring in the 8 days left in September to calculate Sunday January 08, 2017
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 January 08

• Current date: 08 Sep
• Day of the week: Sunday
• New Date: Sunday January 08, 2017
• New Date Day of the week: Sunday
• Counting back form January will put you close, if not passed, the previous year.
• This calculation crosses at least one month. Remeber, this will change our day of the week.
• The solution crosses into a different year.

## Ways to calculate 400 weeks ago

1. Calculate it: Start with a time ago calculator. 400 weeks is easiest solved on a calculator. For ours, we've already factored in the 8 days in September + 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 September's calendar: Begin by identifying 08 Sep on a calendar, note that it’s Sunday, and the total days in August (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 400 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()-400 to get or =WORKDAY(TODAY()), -400, cell:cell) for working weeks.

## Working weeks in 400 calendar weeks

400 weeks is Sunday January 08, 2017 or could be if you only want workdays. This calculation takes 400 weeks and only subtracts by the number of workdays in a week. Remember, removing the weekend from our calculation will drastically change our original Sunday January 08, 2017 date.
