How to Calculate the Date 36 Months Ago

You can easily find the date thirty-six months ago by looking at a calendar. First, find the starting date on the calendar, then count backward one month at a time until you've counted 36 total months.

Instead of counting up, you can move backward one month at a time while subtracting 1 from 36 for each month you move backward. Continue this process until your original number of months has reached zero after subtracting. The result is the date 36 months ago.

You can also use this process to find the date in 36 months.
