How to Calculate the Date 5 Weeks Ago

You can easily find the date five 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 5 total weeks.

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

You can use this same method to find the date in 5 weeks.
