# What's the date 42 days from today?

## Thursday October 31, 2024

0

42 days from today is 31 Oct 2024, a Thursday. Calculating over the equivalent days of a month means multiple weeks, multiple weekends and officially crossing into October from the middle of September. Since today is Thursday, we'll have to adjust for the weekend, if you care about the number of work days. Key difference with adding days that span a full month is that shorter calculations might only require counting days and possibly adjusting for a single weekend. Adding 42 days across September requires us to account for multiple weekends, work schedules, and the specific nuances of being in the middle of September jumping to October.

## How we calculated 42 days from 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 adding 42 days to today's date gets calculated on each visit:

• Started with date inputs: starting point: 19 Sep, Units to add: 42 days, and year: 2024
• Noted your current time of year: 11 days in middle of September
• Added 42 days from current day: 19 Sep, factoring in there are 11 days left in before October
• Did NOT factor in workdays: In this calculation, we kept weekend. See below for just workdays or the 2024 fiscal calendar.

### Tips to get your solution: October 31

Thursday Thursday October 31, 2024 is the 305 day of the year or 83.56% through 2024.

• Current date: 19 Sep

• New Date: Thursday October 31, 2024
• New Date Day of the week: Thursday

## Ways to calculate 42 days from today

1. Just calculate it: Start with a time from today calculator. 42 days is easiest solved on a calculator. For ours, we've already factored in the days in + all number of days in each month and the number of days in 2024. 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 September's calendar: Begin by identifying on a calendar, note that it’s Thursday, and the total days in October (trust me, you’ll need this for smaller calculations) and days until next year (double trust me, you'll need this for larger calculations). From there, count forward 42 times by days, adding days from 19 Sep.
3. Use Excel: Regardless of unit type, I use day calculations here. Type =TODAY()+42 into the cell. If you want to add weeks, multiply your day by 7 and months/years will take their own calculation due to the changing days of the week. To find 42 days workdays, convert to days but use =WORKDAY(TODAY(), [number of days], [holidays]) into the cell. [number of days] is how many working days you want to add, and [holidays] is an optional range of cells that contain dates of holidays to exclude.
