# What was the date 9 weeks ago?

## Thursday May 16, 2024

0

9 weeks ago from today was 16 May 2024, a Thursday. Week conversions that span across multiple months now must consider the 18 days left in middle of July because 9 weeks will keep us in July and we don’t need to worry about adjusting months or years. Run this calculation first by understanding where we’re at in July, identify if we’ll drop into June, and count backwards by 9.

## How we calculated 9 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 9 weeks ago gets calculated on each visit:

1. We started with date inputs: used current day of 18 Jul, then set the calculation - 9 weeks, and factored in the year 2024
2. Noted your current time of year: 9 weeks in July will keep us in July and we don’t need to worry about adjusting months or years.
3. Counted backwards weeks from current day: date - 18 Jul, factoring in the 18 days left in July to calculate Thursday May 16, 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 May 16

• Current date: 18 Jul
• Day of the week: Thursday
• New Date: Thursday May 16, 2024
• New Date Day of the week: Thursday
• Counting backward from May could put you back in Q1 or even the previous year.
• This calculation crosses at least one month. Remeber, this will change our day of the week.

## Ways to calculate 9 weeks ago

1. Calculate it: Start with a time ago calculator. 9 weeks is easiest solved on a calculator. For ours, we've already factored in the 18 days in July + 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 July's calendar: Begin by identifying 18 Jul on a calendar, note that it’s Thursday, and the total days in June (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 9 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()-9 to get or =WORKDAY(TODAY()), -9, cell:cell) for working weeks.

## Working weeks in 9 calendar weeks

9 weeks is Thursday May 16, 2024 or could be if you only want workdays. This calculation takes 9 weeks and only subtracts by the number of workdays in a week. Remember, removing the weekend from our calculation will drastically change our original Thursday May 16, 2024 date.
