Day of the Week Calculator:

A Day of the Week Calculator, also known as a Day Calculator or Day Finder, is a tool or a system that can determine the day of the week for any given date. It can take a specific date (typically in the format of month, day, and year) as input and calculate which day of the week it falls on. This calculation is based on the Gregorian calendar, which is the most widely used calendar system in the world. The Gregorian calendar has a repeating cycle of seven days in a week, and a Day of the Week Calculator uses mathematical algorithms or formulas to perform these calculations. One common algorithm used for this purpose is the Zeller's Congruence formula, which can determine the day of the week for a given date.

How it works? Calculate the day of the week using Zeller's Congruence:

h = (q + 13(m + 1) / 5 + K + K/4 + J/4 - 2J) % 7, Where:

• h is the day of the week (0 = Saturday, 1 = Sunday, 2 = Monday, ..., 6 = Friday)
• q is the day of the month (16)
• m is the adjusted month (10)
• K is the year of the century (year % 100)
• J is the zero-based century (year / 100)

Plug in the values for example:

• q = 16
• m = 10
• K = 23 (since 2023 % 100 = 23)
• J = 20 (since 2023 / 100 = 20)

Calculate the result:

• h = (16 + 13(10 + 1) / 5 + 23 + 23/4 + 20/4 - 2*20) % 7
• h = (16 + 143/5 + 23 + 5.75 + 5 - 40) % 7
• h = (16 + 28.6 - 40) % 7
• h = 4.6 % 7
• h = 4 (after rounding)
