# What was the date 57 days ago?

## Wednesday April 17, 2024

0

57 days ago from today was 17 Apr 2024, a Wednesday. As we approach calculations over month in the past, the 30 days in June play significant roles, alongside the day of the week. Since today is Thursday, we'll have to adjust for the weekend, if you care about the number of work days. Counting backwards from today skips several weekends, meaning that subtracting 57 days takes us from the middle of of June to potentially crossing far beyond June or May. For those of us focusing on workdays, subtracting 57 days ago necessitates adjustments for the fiscal calendar (don’t worry, I've accounted for it below).

## How we calculated 57 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 57 days ago gets calculated on each visit:

1. We started with date inputs: used current day of 13 Jun, then set the calculation - 57 days, and factored in the year 2024
2. Noted your current time of year: 57 days in June will bring us back to May or further.
3. Counted backwards days from current day: date - 13 Jun, factoring in the 13 days left in June to calculate Wednesday April 17, 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 April 17

• Current date: 13 Jun
• Day of the week: Wednesday
• New Date: Wednesday April 17, 2024
• New Date Day of the week: Wednesday
• 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.

## Ways to calculate 57 days ago

1. Calculate it: Start with a time ago calculator. 57 days is easiest solved on a calculator. For ours, we've already factored in the 13 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 13 Jun on a calendar, note that it’s Wednesday, 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 57 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()-57 to get or =WORKDAY(TODAY()), -57, cell:cell) for working days.
