How to Find the Number of Days Between Dates?
In order to find the number of days between dates we need to know the number of days in each of the calendar months.
Months with 31 days - January, March, May, July, August, October, December
Months with 30 days - April, June, September, November
Months with 28 days - February, (a leap year's February has 29 days)
Let us understand the calculation of the days between dates with the help of the following solved example.
Find the number of days between January 14, 2021 and March 12, 2021. (14-1-2021 and 12-3-2021)
To find the number of days between these two dates we count the number of days from the start date to the end date in the following way.
Start date = January 14, 2021
End date = March 12, 2021
The number of days between the two dates = (January 14 to January 31) + (Month of February) + (March 1 to March 12)
= 18 days + 28 days + 11 days
= 57 days
Therefore, there are 57 days between January 14, 2021 and March 12, 2021.
Did you observe that while we included the start date (January 14), we did not include the end date (March 12), while adding the number of days? This is accurate if we want to measure our age in days or just the total days between the start and end date. However, if we want the to know the duration of an event which includes the start date and the end date, then 1 more day will be added to the total number of days and the answer will be 58 days.
Now, try the calculator to find the number of days between the following set of dates.
