HOW MANY DAYS ARE IN A YEAR?
How many days in a Year
As I said earlier, this article contains useful informations that every year contain.
So instead of going straight to the number of weeks that are in a Year we are going to first of all look at how many days are in a year.
Basically there are 12 months in a year too which 7 months has 31days each, 4 moths has 30 days and one (february) which ends with either 28days or 29days.
So let’s do the calculations together.
31days x 7months = 217days
+ 30days x 4months= 120days
+ February, which has 28days but in some cases 29days.
So when we sum this together we are going to have 365 days or 366 days in a year which i will explain why the number of days is split into two later in this article.
So now that we know how many days are in a year, it is going to make our objective of finding how many years are in a year simple.
How many days are in a year?
Knowing how many weeks are in a Year is going to be easier with the help of the calculation that we did above.
Earlier, We notice that we have 365/366 days per year and we all knows that every single week has 7 days which means we are to: divide the number of days that are in a Year by the number of days that are in a week.
- I.e 365days/1week
=52.1 Weeks in a year
So approximately, we have 52 weeks in a year.
Why is it that some years have 366 days instead of 365 days?
Do you remember february that I said I will tell you why february has 28days while 29 days in some years?
February is the reason why some years ended in 366 days instead of 365days.
To answer your question, I think this part of this content is going to answer the question why some years ended in 366 days instead of 365 days.
We have common years and leap years. The common years are those year that has 365 days
While the leap year is a year that ends with 366 days instead of 365 days (it has additional 2 to days).
So we call those years that ends in 366 days “LEAP YEAR” because it has additional 1yday
And to clear your doubt, we can say that every year has 365 days except leap year that ends with 366 days where by February have 29 days
