## reindeary 3 years ago If today is thursday, what is 550 days from today? Is it monday?

1. TuringTest

550/7=?

2. reindeary

a biiiig number

3. sunsetlove

78.6

4. GT

round it up.

5. reindeary

up to what?

6. sunsetlove

79

7. TuringTest

leave it in mixed fraction form. That is, leave the remainder visible.

8. TuringTest

for instance 29/5=5+4/5 so do that with 550/7...

9. TuringTest

just do long division. what is the remainder?

10. GT

For such a problem, you need to do a mod. So, 550 mod 7. The value gives you the days since Thursday, which should give you the exact day.

so mu cuzzin said dont ask him how he know but its a monday he is a smart a**

12. GT

550 mod 7 = 4. So, it is Monday.

thursday

It's very easy...simply take some calculations. If today is december 26 monday on my side then 550 days after it will be 28 june 2013 (Friday). Similarly if today is december 29 thursday 2011 then after 550 days it will be 1st JULY 2013 (Monday).

16. Theta45

So yes It is monday! :)

17. GT

Theta45 - use the simple math of a modulus operation. You are complicating it. :)

you can divide 550 by 7, it gives you 78.6, so you multiply 7*78 and it gives you 546, then you add four days so you get to 550, and four days after thursday is monday. so monday is the answer
