How To Calculate How Many Days Are Left in 2024

You can count the days left in 2024 in a few ways. The easiest is to use a calculator, such as our days until calculator. Another way is to calculate how many days are left in this year manually.

Method One: Subtract the Days in Each Month

If the current date falls in December, then you can simply subtract the current day of the month from 31 since there are 31 days in December. The resulting value is the number of days left in the year.

days left in 2024 = 31 – current day in December

If the current date is not in December, then you can subtract the current day of the month from the number of days in the current month to find the remaining days in that month. Then, to that value, you can add the number of days in each month remaining in the year.

days left in 2024 = days left in the current month + days in next month + … + days in December

By dividing this result by 7, you can also calculate how many weeks are left in the year.

You can use the same method to find how many days or weeks are left until Easter, Thanksgiving, or any other significant date.

Method Two: Subtract the Current Day Number

Another method you can use to count down the days remaining in the year is to subtract the current day number from 365 (or 366 for leap years).

days left in 2024 = 365 – current day of the year

To use this method, you need to know the current day of the year.

How To Calculate the Remaining Days Using Google Sheets

You can also calculate the number of days remaining in 2024 using spreadsheet software such as Google Sheets or Microsoft Excel. You can do this using a few different formulas.

From the Current Date

If you want to find the number of days remaining in the year from the current day, you can use the following function in a cell to calculate that number:

=DATE(YEAR(TODAY()), 12, 31) - TODAY()

For instance, if the current date is October 24th, then the formula might look like this:

Note the formula, listed at the top, calculates and displays the number of remaining days once you type the formula into a cell and hit Enter.

From Any Date

If you want to find the number of days remaining from a specific date listed in another cell, in this case, cell A3, then you can type the following function in a cell to display the number of days remaining from the date displayed in cell A3:

=DATE(YEAR(A3), 12, 31) - A3

For instance, if there is a date value in cell A3, then the formula might look like this:

You can also use these formulas to calculate the date 60 days, 90 days, or even 120 days from now.
