We know that, seven days of a week are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
A week has 7 days.
The names of the days of a week in order are:
1. Sunday
2. Monday
3. Tuesday
4. Wednesday
5. Thursday
6. Friday
7. Saturday
Sunday is the first day of a week.
After each Sunday, Monday comes.
After each Monday, Tuesday comes and so on.
Saturday is the last day of the week.
Then, the next week starts with Sunday again
This sequence goes on and on.
Note: As per dictionary, a week begins on Sunday. But the first working day
A day has 24 hours.
There are 52 weeks in a year.
A calendar shows days and months in a year. The calendar for the year 2023 is shown below. A year has 12 months. But all months do not have the same number of days!
Months 1. January 2. February 3. March 4. April 5. May 6. June 7. July 8. August 9. September 10. October 11. November 12. December |
Number of days 31 28 (or 29) 31 30 31 30 31 31 30 31 30 31 |
Let's Rhyme
Thirty days hath September,
April, June and November;
All the rest have thirty-one
February has twenty eight alone
Except in Leap Year, that's the time
When February's days are twenty-nine
How do I find the number of days in a year?
Days:
We can find out the number of days in a year as follows:
We know that 7 months (January, March, May, July August, October and December) have 31 days.
We also know that 4 months (April, June, September and November) have 30 days. February has 28 or 29 days = 28 or 29
So 1 year has 365 or 366 days
In an ordinary year, February has 28 days while in a leap year, February has 29 days.
So, a leap year has 366 days while an ordinary year has 365 days. A leap year falls nearly once in every four years. 2016 was a leap year.
Weeks
There are seven days in a week.
The days of the week are:
Number 1 2 3 5 6 7 |
Days of the Week Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Saturday |
We consider 1 year to have 52 weeks.
1 day = 24 hours
1 year = 365 or 366 days
1 week = 7 days
1 year = 52 weeks
