This page provides the solution to a specific relative time problem. When was 42 weeks ago from today? Typically, these types of problems are quite difficult to calculate manually (or in your head). This is because dates are typically not counted in base 10, making it tricky for our brain to perform these operations. For example, it is easy to divide 200 by 10, our brains handle that well. Consider this though: there are 24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week, and the number of days in a month changes depending on the month! Our brains are not as good as doing calculations in base 7, 24, or 30/31! We made this tool to help you out with this type of relative time calculation. See our general purpose time ago calculator here.

To calculate 42 weeks ago, you’ll have to use a bit of logic through the language of your choice. Start with the original date (today) and make sure it’s noted as a date, not a basic number.

Next, add 42 weeks as the cell or integer to use. To go back to a previous date, insert the days, weeks, or years as a negative number. This will give us a calculation in the past.

Finally, Add your two columns to calculate: Friday December 10, 2021.
