How to Calculate the Date 6 Weeks Ago

You can easily find the date six 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 6 total weeks.

Instead of counting up, you can move backward one week at a time while subtracting 1 from 6 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 6 weeks ago.

You can use this same method to find the date in 6 weeks.
