Each day of the week is repeated after 7 days
so fist day and 8th day is same.

Ramya said: (Dec 23, 2010)  
Today is Monday..
61th day=?
a week has 7 days..
there are 8 7's in 61
8*7=56

the 56th day must be the same monday
56+remaining days from 61
(ie)56+(61-56)
=56+5
56(mon)+5(tue+wed+thur+fri and the fifth day is saturday)
so ans is saturday..

Ajay said: (Mar 10, 2011)  
SUPPOSE TODAY IS MONDAY AND EACH DAY IS REPEATED AFTER THE 7 DAYS
SO 61 DAYS AFTER IS ......?
61/7 = REMAIN 5 DAYS
SO MONDAY + 5 DAY = SATURDAY.

Fiji Francis said: (Oct 25, 2011)  
Any equations for solving this problem?

Juhi said: (Nov 3, 2011)  
Sanju... its a very good solution realy

Amita said: (Nov 9, 2011)  
Deepa & ramya you both are right.

Subhashree said: (Nov 10, 2011)  
Ajay, thanks dear. , it's really a good & easy solution.

Ovii said: (Dec 3, 2011)  
Another question to further explain the above statement

What will be day after 366 says(keeping today as monday)??
subtracting it from 392.
392-366=26.
26/7=3.5/7( where 3 is quotient.
5 is remainder.
7 is divisor.)
now moving back 5 days (because of remainder).
it will be thursday.
another way to calcultae thursday.
as 7*4=28
but the diff is 26
28-26=2
moving ahead(instead of backward) from monday,it will tuesday first then wednesday but the third day will be thusday so we add
2 days to manday and the result will be the third day.

I hope it works.

Its upto to your choice what you choose(backward or ahead).

Ramya said: (Dec 12, 2011)  
7*9=63-2=61
so after 61 days it will be saturday

Somu said: (Jun 26, 2012)  
Monday = 1 odd day.

61 days = (8 weeks + 5 odd days).

= 5 odd days.

Total odds = 1 + 5 odd days.

= 6.

Number 6 mentions Saturday.

Nagababu said: (Oct 12, 2012)  
Today is Monday Each day of the week is repeated after 7 days.

So fist day and 8th day is same.

So Today is Monday mean 56th day is Monday.

So answer is Saturday (process:- 8*7=56, 56th day is common ga Monday:, so 57th:-the, 58:-wen, 59:-thu, 60:-fri, 61:-sat).

Dhanunjay said: (Dec 2, 2012)

Please Reply me with the Explanation.

Narendragoud said: (Jan 19, 2014)  
Today + 61 days : 62 days.
So (8 weeks+6 days) : 62 days.

So 6 odd days ;
It is nothing but saturday.

Pragati said: (Apr 7, 2014)  
61/8.

Since every 8th day is same.

So quotient comes to be 7.

And 7 acc to the table.

Sun - 1.
Mon - 2.
Tues - 3.
Wed - 4.
Thurs - 5.
Fri - 6.
Sat - 7 or 0.

So the answer comes out to be Saturday.

Ramesh.K said: (Jul 21, 2014)  
Today is Monday. After 61 days, it will be:

Ans:
Today is monday;
No.of odd days = 61/7.
= 5 odd days.

Today is monday after 5 days = (tue+wed+thur+fri and the fifth day is saturday).

Answer is Saturday.

Enoch Luwabo said: (Nov 10, 2014)  
That seems confusing. After 61 days implies 61/7 = 8 weeks remainder 5 days.

Since this week has its first day on Monday it means its last day is Sunday.

Thus day 56 is Sunday, adding the five remaining days gives us Friday.

Vinaybhaipatel said: (Nov 30, 2014)  
If week start with Monday, so it ends with Sunday, not Sunday, hence at 63rd day it will be Sunday. So at 61st it will be Friday.

Raj said: (Apr 12, 2015)  
Can you please solve this question?

What was the day of the week on 17 august 1983?

Jany said: (May 19, 2015)  
Note the days given i.e 62 days.

Given day is a Tuesday.

= 7*9 = 63-1 = 62.

So the 62nd day is a Monday.

Daulat Soni said: (Jul 24, 2015)  
Total day is 61.

First calculate week and extra day.

61/7=56 (week)+5 (extra day).

Today is Monday, so after 5 day is Saturday (Monday+5=6, Saturday).

Sandeep Rathod said: (Jul 30, 2015)  
Actually question is confusing. What is after 61 day?

Question should be what is on 62nd day or on 61th day. So no confusion.

On 61th day it is Friday. 62nd day will be Saturday.

Sangeetha V said: (Aug 12, 2015)  
61 days = 61/7= 8 weeks = 5 odd days.

If today is Monday.

After 61 day = Monday+5 odd days.

= Saturday.

After 61 day is saturday. How to calculate which date will come after 61 day from today date?

Vaishu said: (Jul 21, 2016)  
What was the day on 6th march 2000? Please explain.

Bhadra said: (Sep 21, 2016)  
I think it is Friday.

1999 + (1.1.2000 + 6.3.20000).
1600 = 0 odd days.
300 = 1 odd day.

99 years = 52 ordinary years + 27 leap years.
=52 * 1 + 27 * 2.
= 52 + 54.
= 106.
= 15 weeks + 1 odd day.

1999 = 1600 + 300 + 99.
= 0 + 1 + 1.
= 2 odd days.
->>>>>>>>>>>>>>-
1.1.2000 + 6.3.2000.
31(jan) + 29(feb) + 6(mar) = 66 days.
= 9 weeks + 3 days.
6th march 2000 = 0 + 1 + 1 + 3 = 5.

Malathi said: (Nov 24, 2016)  
5th day is Friday.

So, I think all other is the wrong answer.

Adi said: (Dec 28, 2016)  
What was the day on 31st Dec 1996? Please answer me.

Sairam said: (Dec 28, 2016)  
Every 1st day of week is Monday according to given data.

63/7 = 9weeks ie;9 Mondays.

Therefore for 61 days is 8 weeks 5days ie; 2days earlier than Monday is Saturday.
OR
63-61 = 2.
therefore,
2 days earlier than Monday is Saturday.

Honey said: (Feb 15, 2017)  
It was Saturday @Nilambara.

Govind said: (Apr 15, 2017)  
You all are right, thanks for explaining the solution.

Rucha said: (Apr 24, 2017)  
Also 61/7 remainder is 5 then add Monday +5 days comes Saturday so the answer is Saturday.

Shafi said: (May 23, 2017)  
Every day is repeating after 7 days, so if today is Monday 8th day will be Monday. The consecutive Mondays will be multiple of 8.

Eg:8,16,24 etc.

So, 61 not multiple of 8 but 64 so 64 day is Monday then 61 day is -3 so the day is Thursday.

Raj said: (Jun 22, 2017)  
If today is wednessday after 233 days which day come? Solve.

Santosh Patel said: (Jun 26, 2017)  
Today is Monday so after 61 day,
near 61 day table of 7,
7*9=63,
63-61=2,
So: monday-2day.
Sunday, Saturday .
That's Final answer Saturday.

Sada said: (Jul 18, 2017)  
61%7 = 5 odd days.

Monday+5=saturday.

Gyana Ranjan Mohapatra said: (Aug 8, 2017)  
61 year=61 odd day+ (61/4 leap year odd day),
= 61+15=76= 6 odd day.
= Today is Monday then 6th day is Saturday.

Samiul said: (Sep 6, 2017)  
7*9=63 63 is Monday 63-61=2.
Monday after 2 days = Saturday.
Ans=Saturday.

Shunmugasundaram said: (Nov 20, 2017)  
As week codes.

SUN - 0 , MON - 1, TUE - 2 ,WED - 3
THU - 4, FRI - 5 , SAT - 6
First find 63 days it will be
= 63/7
= 0
As per the week code its Sunday.
Any way subtract 2 days from Sundays.

Ramesh Kumar Sarraf said: (Feb 20, 2018)  
2004 Feb 5 Tuesday, 2008 Feb 5 =? Day.

Can anyone solve this?

Krishna Mohan Singh said: (Apr 3, 2018)  
@All.

The easiest way to calculate this is;

Just calculate that how far the number which is givn from the multiple of 7.. like if i change the question like.

Eg:

Que. =#If today is Sunday then after 50 days it will be?
Ans. = ATQ, day of 50th day.

Seeing the multiple of 7. like 7, 14, 21...49.

Then on 49th day, we'll get Sunday but on next day i.e. 50th day it's MONDAY.

Amrutha said: (Jun 22, 2018)  
today is mon
after 61 days=?.

So after 7days again mon will come,
61=multiples of 7 is 56 .
So on 56 mon,57 tue,58 wed,59 thr, 60 fri, 61 sat.
Therefore after 61 days means Sunday.

Suraj said: (Jun 24, 2018)  
The answer is correct. After 61 days is the question. It is Saturday.

In question, what is the 61th day the answer is Friday? See the difference.

Venky said: (Aug 17, 2018)  
Today Saturday after 343 days which day comes? Please explain.

Vidhu said: (Feb 21, 2019)  
After 61 days means, it is 62nd day, right?

Viahal said: (Jul 8, 2019)  
It's Friday, not Saturday.

61%7 = 5, start from Monday and 5th day is Friday.

Keshavi said: (Jul 27, 2019)  
Thanks for explaining it @Ajay.

Rakesh said: (Sep 5, 2019)  
It's Friday, not Saturday.

61/7 = 5, start from Monday and 5th day is Friday.

Shri said: (Sep 10, 2019)  
Thanks for explaining it in a simple way @Ajay.

Kishan Kumar Swain said: (Dec 17, 2019)  
After 61 days means it should be counted as 62nd day.

So 61/7=56 (quotient). So 56th day is Sunday.

62-56=6 that is Saturday.

So and is Saturday.

Take a simple example, i.e,

Today is Monday after 2 days it will be which day?

The answer will be Thursday day, not Wednesday.

Devi Sailakshmi said: (May 21, 2020)  
Monday day code is 1.

Given days + Monday daycode=(1+61)=62.

To find odd days 62 is divided by 7.
62÷7=6 remainder.
Sunday day code-0.
Mon-1,
Tue-2,
Wed-3,
Thurs-4,
Fri-5,
Sat-6.

So, 62÷7 we get remainder 6 so, the day code of 6 is Sat. So the answer is SATURDAY.

Prabh Virdi said: (Jun 15, 2020)  
Firstly calculate the leap years and ordinary days in 61 days.

(15 leap + 46 ordinary days)
[15*2+46*1] =76. "Because leap year having 2 odd days ".

In 76 days there are 10 weeks.
So left 6 are reminder odd days.
Answer is Saturday.

S.Vidhya Lakshmi said: (Jun 20, 2020)  
Today is Monday.
Let's take 1- Monday
8 - Monday
15 - Monday
.....................
64 - Monday.

So 63 is Sunday, 62 Saturday, 61 is Friday.
