How to Calculate the Date 8 Weeks Ago

You can easily find the date eight 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 8 total weeks.

Instead of counting up, you can move backward one week at a time while subtracting 1 from 8 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 8 weeks ago.

You can use this same method to find the date in 8 weeks.
