## How to Calculate the Date 42 Weeks Ago

You can easily find the date forty-two weeks ago by looking at a calendar. First, find the starting date on the calendar, then count backward one week at a time until you've counted 42 total weeks.

Instead of counting up, you can move backward one week at a time while subtracting 1 from 42 for each week you move backward. Continue this process of subtracting the weeks until your original number of weeks has reached zero after subtracting. The result is the date 42 weeks ago.

You can use this same method to find the date in 42 weeks.
