Number of days


        28 (or 29)











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?


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.


There are seven days in a week.

The days of the week are:

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
