## Saturday August 15, 1925

0

99 years in the past was 15 Aug 1925, a Saturday. Subtracting 99 years in the past is usually simple. Anything under a decade can usually be counted on one hand. The biggest challenge will be skipping decades behind or even centuries. Additionally, we’re 15 days from the end of August, so being in the middle of of the month, you'll need to consider monthly changes as well. Weekly and daily changes most likely won't impact 99 years ago.

## How we calculated 99 years 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 99 years ago gets calculated on each visit:

1. We started with date inputs: used current day of 15 Aug, then set the calculation - 99 years, and factored in the year 2024
2. Noted your current time of year: 99 years in August will bring us back to July or further.
3. Counted backwards years from current day: date - 15 Aug, factoring in the 15 days left in August to calculate Saturday August 15, 1925
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 August 15

• Current date: 15 Aug
• Day of the week: Saturday
• New Date: Saturday August 15, 1925
• New Date Day of the week: Saturday
• August is the beginning of Q3. Dates in previous months will be part of 1H fiscal years.
• The solution crosses into a different year.
• Your date will be a weekend. Consider if you only want workdays in your calculation.

## Ways to calculate 99 years ago

1. Calculate it: Start with a time ago calculator. 99 years is easiest solved on a calculator. For ours, we've already factored in the 15 days in August + all number of days in each month and the number of days in . Simply add your years and choose the length of time, then click "calculate". This calculation does not factor in workdays or holidays (see below!).
2. Use August's calendar: Begin by identifying 15 Aug on a calendar, note that it’s Saturday, and the total days in July (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 99 times years by years, subtracting years from until your remainder of years is 0.
3. Use excel: For more complex years calculations or if you h8 our site (kidding), I use Excel functions like =TODAY()-99 to get or =WORKDAY(TODAY()), -99, cell:cell) for working years.

## Working years in 99 calendar years

99 years is Saturday August 15, 1925 or could be if you only want workdays. This calculation takes 99 years and only subtracts by the number of workdays in a week. Remember, removing the weekend from our calculation will drastically change our original Saturday August 15, 1925 date.
