## How to Calculate the Date 5 Months Ago

You can easily find the date five 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 5 total months.

Instead of counting up, you can move backward one month at a time while subtracting 1 from 5 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 5 months ago.

You can also use this process to find the date in 5 months.
