Find the leap year?

QUESTION: 8

**Q. **India got independence on 15th August 1947.what was the day on that date ?

Solution:

We shall first calculate the number of odd days till 31 December 1946.

Number of odd days in the first 1600 years = 0 odd day

Number of odd days in the next 300 years = 1 odd day

Now, 46 years had 11 leap years and 35 ordinary years.

The number of odd days in 46 years=(2×11)+(1×35)=22+35=57=8weeks and 1 odd day.

Now, we shall calculate the number of odd days in 1947 till 15 August.

Month Days January(31) February(28) March(31) April(30) May(31) June(30) July(31) August(15)

Days = 31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 15 = 227

227 days = 32 weeks and 3 odd days

So, the total number of odd days till 15 August 1947 = 0 + 1 + 1 + 3 = 5

On counting five days from Monday, we get Friday.

Therefore, 15 August 1947 was a Friday.

QUESTION: 9

Which calendar year will be same as the year 2008?

Solution:

For every 28 years the calendars will same, so years 2008,2036 have same calendar like 1980

QUESTION: 10

The day of the 5th november is equal to the day of the date in the same year?

Solution:

We will show that the number of odd days between the last day of February and the last day of October is zero.

March April May June July Aug. Sept. Oct.

31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 31 + 30 + 31 = 241 days = 35 weeks = 0 odd day.

Number of odd days during this period = 0.

Thus, 5th March of a year will be the same day as 5th November of that year.
