### Months and Days Examples

Now, calculate the number of days in a year based on the number of days in every month. That is, Count starts from the month of January
= (31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31)
= 365 days for a common year.

Now, calculate the number of days for a leap year. That is,
= (31 + 29 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31)
= 366 days for a leap year.

Seven days are equal to 1 week. We need to divide the total number of days in a year by seven. That is,
365 / 7 = 52 weeks and 1 day.
And, for leap year
366 / 7 = 52 weeks and 2 days.
Every leap year is divided by four.

For example, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012, 2016, 2020, 2024, and etcâ€¦ are leap years. The remaining years, which are not divided by four are common years.

We have different seasons for every three months. That means December, January, and February comes under the winter season. March, April, and May considered as Spring Season. Next, the Summer season covers June, July, and August months. Finally, September, October, and November come under the autumn season. Totally four seasons in a year.
