# What is the average number of weeks in a month?

## Answer: The average number of weeks in a month is 4.345

Every month has at least 4 full weeks and 1, 2, or 3 days extra. For example, months with 30 days like April, June, September, etc have 4 weeks + 2 days extra and the months with 31 days like January, March, May etc have 4 days + 3 days extra. February has exactly 4 weeks and during a leap year, it has 1-day extra.

We get 52.142 weeks in a year.

The average number of weeks in a month = number of weeks in a year ÷ total number of months

= 52.142 ÷ 12 = 4.345

Thus we get 4.345 as the average number of weeks in a month.
