What was the Day on 26 January 1950?

A leap year is a calendar year with 366 days that only happens once every four years. There are also 24 leap years every 100 years. A year is considered to be a leap year if it can be divided by 4, and for century years, that number should be 400 instead of 100. For instance, 100 is not a leap year even though it can be divided by 4, even though it should be as it is a century year. As a result, 100, 200, and 300 do not leap years. Calculate the number of years from the given question using these conditions.

Answer - It was Thursday on 26 January 1950.

We are aware that odd days suggest days rather than full weeks. Thus, there have been no odd days in 400, 800, 1200, 1600, or 2000 years. As a result, there were no odd days over the first 1600 years. There will be one odd day in the next 300 years. There are 5 odd days in 49 years (12 x 2 + 37 x 1), or 61 days. 

There were a total of 6 odd days in the 1949 years (1 plus 5). Consider the year 1950 now. 26 days in January equal 3 weeks plus 5 extra days, or 5 odd days. Total odd days: 6 + 5 = 11; so, 4 odd days. Sunday is the first odd day, followed by Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Thus, January 26, 1950, was a Thursday.

Summary:

What was the Day on 26 January 1950?

It was Thursday 26 January 1950. There were a total of 6 odd days in the 1949 years (1 plus 5). Consider the year 1950 now. 26 days in January equal 3 weeks plus 5 extra days, or 5 odd days. Total odd days: 6 + 5 = 11; so, 4 odd days. Thus, January 26, 1950, was a Thursday.
