Question 14

# If 1st January 2013 was Wednesday, then what day of the week was it on 2nd January 2014?

Solution

According to the question, 1st January 2013 is Wednesday

Number of days left in January = $$31-1=30$$

Similarly, odd days from 1st January 2013 till 2nd January 2014 =

= $$(30+28+31+30+31+30+31+31+30+31+30+31+2)\%7$$

= $$(2+0+3+2+3+2+3+3+2+3+2+3+2)=30$$

Now, dividing 30 by 7, remainder = 2

Thus, day on 2nd January 2014 = Wednesday (+2) = Friday
