# What's the date 71 days from today?

## Tuesday October 15, 2024

0

71 days from today is 15 Oct 2024, a Tuesday. Calculating over the equivalent days of a month means multiple weeks, multiple weekends and officially crossing into September from the early part of August. Since today is Monday, we'll need to account for a full week before hitting weekend 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 71 days across August requires us to account for multiple weekends, work schedules, and the specific nuances of being in the early part of August jumping to September.

## How we calculated 71 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 71 days to today's date gets calculated on each visit:

• Started with date inputs: starting point: 05 Aug, Units to add: 71 days, and year: 2024
• Noted your current time of year: 26 days in early part of August
• Added 71 days from current day: 05 Aug, factoring in there are 26 days left in before September
• 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 15

Tuesday Tuesday October 15, 2024 is the 289 day of the year or 79.18% through 2024.

• Current date: 05 Aug
• Day of the week: Tuesday
• New Date: Tuesday October 15, 2024
• New Date Day of the week: Tuesday
• August is the end of the summer so counting forward from here could propel us into a new season or even year.
• This calculation crosses at least one month. Remeber, this will change our day of the week.

## Ways to calculate 71 days from today

1. Just calculate it: Start with a time from today calculator. 71 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 August's calendar: Begin by identifying on a calendar, note that it’s Tuesday, and the total days in September (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 71 times by days, adding days from 05 Aug.
3. Use Excel: Regardless of unit type, I use day calculations here. Type =TODAY()+71 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 71 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.

## 71 working days from today

71 days is Tuesday October 15, 2024 or could be Tuesday November 12, 2024 if you only want workdays. This calculation takes 71 days and only adds by the number of workdays in a week. Remember, removing the weekend from our calculation will drastically change our original Tuesday October 15, 2024 date.
