How many weeks in a year?. Do you know: in a normal year and in a Leap year. But stop: Do you know what is a leap year? This article is for you. Please read it to understand what is a leap year and what is a normal year, and how to find that How many weeks are in a year. We already know about the different units of time like seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, years, decade, century, etc.
Now let us find how we can convert one unit of time into another unit of time. Specifically, we will focus on how to find how many weeks are there in a year.
Starting with the smallest unit, which is seconds into minutes.
One minute= 60 seconds
One hour= 60 minutes
One hour= 3600 seconds
One day= 24 hours
One day= 1440 minutes
One day= 86400 seconds
One week= 7 days
One week=168 hours
One week= 10080 minutes
One week=604800 seconds
One month= 30 days generally speaking
However, the breakup of days is given in the table below.
S.NO | Month | Days in Month |
1 | January | 31 |
2 | February | 28 (29 in leap years) |
3 | March | 31 |
4 | April | 30 |
5 | May | 31 |
6 | June | 30 |
7 | July | 31 |
8 | August | 31 |
9 | September | 30 |
10 | October | 31 |
11 | November | 30 |
12 | December | 31 |
you can see that January, March, May, July, August, October, and December are having 31 days while remaining months are with 30 days except for February. In February there are 28 days normally while in the case of leap year it has 29 days.
Now, what is a leap year?
A normal year has 365 days while a leap year has 366 days due February of 29 in that year.
How to find leap year?
- Leap years are the ones which be divided by 4 (like 2012, 2016, 2020, 2024, etc)
- Except if that year can be divided by 100 like(2100,2200, 2300, etc)
- Or except it can be divided by 400 (like 2000, 2400, 2800, etc)
Now moving back again to our topic ie How to find weeks in a year?
Normal year
One year= 365 days
One year= 8760 hours
One year= 525600 minutes
One year= 31536000 seconds
Leap year
One year= 366 days
One year= 8784 hours
One year= 527040 minutes
One year= 31622400 seconds
Now the question of, how to weeks in a normal year and how many weeks in a leap year?
Normal year
One year= 52 weeks+ one day
Leap year
One year= 52 weeks+2 days
From the year 2019 to 2030 are enlisted below in a table for normal and leap year along with the number of weeks.
Year | Leap year | weeks |
2019 | No | 52wekks+1 day |
2020 | yes | 52weeks+2days |
2021 | No | 52weeks+1day |
2022 | No | 52weeks+1day |
2023 | No | 52weeks+1day |
2024 | Yes | 52weeks+2days |
2025 | No | 52weeks+1day |
2026 | No | 52weeks+1day |
2027 | No | 52weeks+1day |
2028 | Yes | 52weeks+2days |
2029 | No | 52weeks+1day |
2030 | NO | 52weeks+1day |
One decade is equal to 10 years and one century is equal to 100 years which is equal to a period of ten decades
Now let’s learn how we can find whether a given here is a leap year or not.
We already know that a leap year is a year with366 days in which in the month of February have 29 days.
To find whether the year is a leap year or not we just need to follow two simple rules
- we have a leap year when the number represented by the last two digits of the given year is divisible by 4
- However, in the case of century years only like 1900, 2000, 2100, 2200, etc it will be leap year only when the number represented by the first two digits of the year is divisible by 4
Let’s do some examples to understand it with full insight.
Example 1:
let’s find out whether the year 1804 was a leap year or not?
Here the number represented by the last two digits is 04 which is divisible by 4 thus the year 1804 was a leap year.
Example 2:
let’s find out whether the year 1782 was a leap year or not?
Here the number represented by the last two digits is 82 which is not divisible by 4, thus 1782 was not a leap year.
Example 3:
Now let us find if the year 2300 will be a leap year or a normal year?
The year 2300 is a century year, so we have to check if the number represented by the first two digits 23 is divisible by 4?
So 23 is not divisible by 4, therefore, the year 2100 will not be a leap year.
Example 4:
Whether the year 2400 will be a leap year?
The year 2400 is a century year, and its first two digits ie 24 are divisible by 4. Thus we can conclude that the year 2400 will be a leap year.
I am hopeful that by studying this article you are now able to find the normal year and leap year and find accordingly no of weeks in a year.
Now here are some FAQs
How many weeks in a school year?
Normally a school year is divided in two semesters, a spring semester and a Fall semester each having 18 weeks for study and one week for the exam. Thus a total of 36 weeks for study and two weeks for exams. Thus we can say that there are 36+2=38 weeks in the school year.
The number of weeks in a school may be different in different regions of the world with a variation of 1-2 weeks.
The number of workweeks in a year?
Workweeks and work hours per week also vary from region to region. In the UK there are 35 hours of the workweek or in some places 40 hours work week. Leaves in a year are likely to be 4 to 8 weeks. A rough estimate is that you have 42 weeks of 35 hours per week. or 47 weeks of 40 hours.
How many bi weeks in a year?
Since there are 52 weeks in a year. Therefore there will be around 56 payroll weeks in a year.
How many times will I get paid biweekly in 2020?
If you are paid by your employer biweekly, then you will get two salaries each month except for two months ie January and July in which you will get 3 payments. However, again it depends on the payment calendar of your company.
