61. What was the day of the week on 16th August, 1947?

Solution:

15th August, 1947 = (1946 years + Period from 1st Jan., 1947 to 15th )
Counting of odd days:
1600 years have 0 odd day. 300 years have 1 odd day.
47 years = (11 leap years + 36 ordinary years)
= [(11 x 2) + (36 x 1) ] odd days
= 58 odd days
= 2 odd days
Jan   Feb   Mar   Apr   May   Jun   Jul   Aug
= 31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 15
= 227 days
= (32 weeks + 3 days)
= 3,
Total number of odd days
= (0 + 1 + 2 + 3) odd days
= 6 odd days.
Hence, the required day was ‘Saturday’.

62.  Prove that any date in March of a year is the same day of the week corresponding date in November that year.

Solution:

We will show that the number of odd days between last day of February and last day of October is zero.
March   April   May   June   July   Aug.   Sept.   Oct.
31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 31 + 30 + 31
= 241 days
= 35 weeks
= 0 odd day
Number of odd days during this period = 0.
Thus, 1st March of an year will be the same day as 1st November of that year. Hence, the result follows

63.  If today is Saturday, what will be the day 350 days from now ?

64. The calendar for the year 1988 is same as which upcoming year ?

65. Given that on 9th August 2016 is Saturday. What was the day on 9th August 1616 ?

Solution:

i.e., on 9th August 1616 has to be Saturday.

66. Second & fourth Saturdays and every Sunday is a holiday. How many working days will be there in a month of 31 days beginning on a Friday ?

Solution:

Given that the month begins on a Friday and has 31 days
Sundays = 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st
⇒ Total Sundays = 5
Every second & fourth Saturday is holiday. 2nd & 4th Saturday in every month = 2
Total days in the month = 31
Total working days = 31 – (5 + 2) = 24 days.

67. On 17th March, 1997 Monday falls. What day of the week was it on 17th March, 1996?

So, the day on 17th March, 1997 will be 1 day beyond the day on 17th March,1996.
Here 17th March, 1997 is Monday. So, 17th March, 1996 is Sunday.
