How many weeks in a year? (Calculation)
There are 365 days in a regular year and 7 days per week. By starting our calculations with this data, we get
Weeks in a one regular year = (365 days) / (7 days / week)
This calculation results in 52.143 weeks per regular year.
Therefore there are 52 weeks and 1 additional day in a regular year.
Generally, the leap occurs every 4 years and there are exceptions for some years that are divisible by 100 not by 400.
Let’s see the calculation part, 1 leap year has 366 days and normally 1 week has 7 days
So, weeks in a one leap year = (366 days) / (7 days / week)
This calculation results in 52.286 weeks per leap year.
Therefore there are 52 weeks and 2 additional days in a leap year.
|Weeks in a Regular year = 52 Weeks + 1 day|
Weeks in a Leap year = 52 Weeks + 2 days
