# Computing the number of days between two given dates

In one week there are 7days. If one week over another one week begins.

Can you Compute the number of days between two given dates.

In one week there are 7days.

If one week over another one week begins.

If Sunday = 1, Monday = 2, Tuesday = 3, Wednesday = 4, Thursday = 5, Friday = 6, and Saturday = 7.

If today is 6, What day was Yesterday, day before yesterday? and what will be tomorrow and day after tomorrow?

Finding the day in previous or upcoming week.

E.g. Day 14 denotes Saturday. Can you guess what is 21st day?

You have already learnt in the previous class, that how many weeks are there in a month and year.

Note: Two weeks make a fortnight, that is, 14 days make a fortnight

Try These

1. How many months have 30 days? 4

2. How many months have 31 days? 7

3. Is there any month less than 30 days? Yes, February

Computing the number of days between two given dates:

To compute days between two given dates, count the number of days in between the given dates. If month falls in between two dates, calculate the number of days in month.

Note: Note: Generally, 1 month = 4 weeks

EXAMPLE

Calculate the number of days between Independence day and Gandhi Jayanthi day?

Solution:

Independence day = 15th August

Gandhi Jeyanthi = 2nd October Note: In the August month we have 31 days, Independence day falls on 15th August, so, we have to subtract 15 from 31.

Try These

1. Calculate the number of days between Christmas and Republic day? Christmas day = 25th December

Republic day = 26th January 2. Calculate the number of days between Pongal and May day?

Pongal = 14th January

May day = 1st May 3. Calculate the number of days between Teacher’s day and Children’s day?

Teacher’s day = 5th September

Children’s day = 14th Novemeber Tags : Time | Term 3 Chapter 4 | 4th Maths , 4th Maths : Term 3 Unit 4 : Time
