What was the date 72 months ago?


Thursday June 14, 2018


72 months before today was 14 Jun 2018, a Thursday. Subtracting 72 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 14 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 72 months will change the year, season, or fiscal calendar, and subtract your dates.

How we calculated 72 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 72 months ago gets calculated on each visit:

  1. We started with date inputs: used current day of 14 Jun, then set the calculation - 72 months, and factored in the year 2024
  2. Noted your current time of year: 72 months in June will bring us back to May or further.
  3. Counted backwards months from current day: date - 14 Jun, factoring in the 14 days left in June to calculate Thursday June 14, 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 June 14

  • Current date: 14 Jun
  • Day of the week: Thursday
  • New Date: Thursday June 14, 2018
  • New Date Day of the week: Thursday
  • June is the beginning of summer so be careful, counting backwards could put you in the chilly months of spring and winter.
  • The solution crosses into a different year.

Ways to calculate 72 months ago

  1. Calculate it: Start with a time ago calculator. 72 months is easiest solved on a calculator. For ours, we've already factored in the 14 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 14 Jun on a calendar, note that it’s Thursday, 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 72 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()-72 to get or =WORKDAY(TODAY()), -72, cell:cell) for working months.

Working months in 72 calendar months

72 months is Thursday June 14, 2018 or could be if you only want workdays. This calculation takes 72 months and only subtracts by the number of workdays in a week. Remember, removing the weekend from our calculation will drastically change our original Thursday June 14, 2018 date.
