What was the date 71 months ago?


Sunday July 15, 2018


71 months before today was 15 Jul 2018, a Sunday. Subtracting 71 months in the past is usually just counting from June; however, longer calculations will push us from 2024 into 2023 or further. Even if the calculation remains within the year, I usually take note of the 15 days left in the middle of June to prep for an additional calculation before May. But that’s all there is to it - understand the month, if 71 months will change the year, season, or fiscal calendar, and subtract your dates.

How we calculated 71 months 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 71 months ago gets calculated on each visit:

  1. We started with date inputs: used current day of 15 Jun, then set the calculation - 71 months, and factored in the year 2024
  2. Noted your current time of year: 71 months in June will bring us back to May or further.
  3. Counted backwards months from current day: date - 15 Jun, factoring in the 15 days left in June to calculate Sunday July 15, 2018
  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 15

  • Current date: 15 Jun
  • Day of the week: Sunday
  • New Date: Sunday July 15, 2018
  • New Date Day of the week: Sunday
  • July is one of the highest vacation months, so prepare for more OOO messages.
  • 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 71 months ago

  1. Calculate it: Start with a time ago calculator. 71 months is easiest solved on a calculator. For ours, we've already factored in the 15 days in June + all number of days in each month and the number of days in . Simply add your months 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 15 Jun on a calendar, note that it’s Sunday, 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 71 times months by months, subtracting months from until your remainder of months is 0.
  3. Use excel: For more complex months calculations or if you h8 our site (kidding), I use Excel functions like =TODAY()-71 to get or =WORKDAY(TODAY()), -71, cell:cell) for working months.

Working months in 71 calendar months

71 months is Sunday July 15, 2018 or could be if you only want workdays. This calculation takes 71 months and only subtracts by the number of workdays in a week. Remember, removing the weekend from our calculation will drastically change our original Sunday July 15, 2018 date.
