ANSWERS: 4

Cannot answer as you have not stated which day of the week is the first day (as that can increase the number of mondays) and whether the first year is a leap year or not (as this will influence the number of days that exist).

It depends the year in which you start counting and how soon in the first week you encounter the first Monday. In a regular year, there are 52 weeks + 1 day. So, in a normal year that starts on a Monday there will be 53 Mondays, if it does not start on a Monday, then there will be 52 Mondays. Leap years have 52 weeks + 2 days. So, you can have 53 Mondays in one of these years if either the first or second day of the year is a Monday. Rather than trying to count the Mondays up for myself, I constructed an Excel spreadsheet that would do it for me. For the 52 year period starting Monday 1 January 2007 there will be 2401 Mondays. If you started counting at the beginning of this year (2008), then there will be 2400 Mondays in the next 52 years.  bingobongo  First Bard of Kevonia wrote, "Glenn, perhaps I'm missing something, but surely 52 weeks with 52 Mondays is a minimum. So 2704 is a minimum  yet you have 300 less than that...??" Ok, I have checked my figures again. It looks like I made a major error in either my calculations or in transcription. I have recreated the spreadsheet twice now and I get 2714.


Linda JoyI'm sorry that wasn't very nice. I've been up over 30 hours and I don't like being told what to do but you're probably right I'll check back tomorrow I just couldn't go to sleep until I apologize for being mean

Linda Joy2713.2277714. And thank you for correcting me. Have a great day!


roughly speaking it's 52 years times 52 weeks (mondays) in a year = 2704. So I don't know how anyone gets 2400.

See my answer. You can't simply go with 52 week times 52 years. This is because a year is NOT exactly 52 weeks long. 7 times 52 = 364 days. However, the year is 365 days. So, there is an extra day rotating through there. In addition, every 4th year is a leap year. So, that is going to ad even more days to the calculation. Thus, then final answer that I gave of 2714 Mondays. (See my answer.)

Sorry I posted that comment on the wrong answer.


Technically 2713.2277714 And here's a bonus 'Monday Monday' by The Mamas & the Papas https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=h81Ojd3d2rY

Ok.there are technically 365.2422 days in a year so x 52/7 is 2713.2277714
